Department of Bad Ideas

Truckers demand congressional cap on gas prices. Admittedly, this could be a good idea for truckers since when we need to start rationing gas I bet they’d get preferential treatment. Then again, I sort of despair of persuading people to adopt reasonable policies like congestion pricing and — yes — higher gas taxes, so maybe price controls, shortages, and rationing is the way to get us thinking about ways to get folks out of their cars and onto sidewalks, bikes, buses, trains, etc.
