Uncle Sam no help at the gas pumps

In regards to Corey Russell's July 16 "Cutting to the Core" personal column about the energy crisis, he says Honda has come up with an effective way to save consumers at the pumps, but that the "suits" in Washington D.C. are dragging their feet. I don't doubt that for one second.

Why would they put a rush on it? The gasoline tax is at an all-time high. Why ruin a good thing, right?

Washington D.C. has been increasing taxes as much as possible, and most states are doing the same. It's becoming discouraging.

I would like to see some help with this energy crisis.

I guess teaming up with the car industry and getting those hydrogen fuel cell cars that Mr. Russell mentioned up and running for America just won't pay the bill. We have the technology and the means, but why should the "suits" help out when they're making money on every gallon we motorists pump?

Thank you, Uncle Sam.
