Stop Complaining and Blame Yourself

Here’s a good way for the government to reduce the heat it’s taking about high gas prices: giving every American a miles-per-gallon meter (worth about $200).

The Web site Hypermiling claims that knowing your gas mileage is the best way to cut gas consumption.

Using a meter and gas-saving driving techniques, self proclaimed “King of Hypermilers” Wayne Gerdes recently got his Honda Accord up to 50 mpg.

Looks like radio stations and other Hypermilers seem to be excited about it.

But are we really ready (or willing) to be responsible for our own consumption?
