Welcome to more of our Kleptocracy and government owned corporate America (GM) taking every opportunity to fleece us. Why would an auto maker want to boost taxes on the fuel that runs it's products? Wouldn't that be bad or business? Not in this fucked up environment.

I think it's more sinister and I just don't trust these thieving crony capitalists. I think corporate America and government are trying to herd us in...maybe force us to buy shit like that Chevy Volt at 50k. Once they have us penned in- they gouge us with some more veiled thievery down the road.
Know this simple rule. If government or corporate America want you to do something...it's always in your best interests to do the exact opposite. I wouldn't buy a GM or Chrysler product if they marked it half off.
