Mayor Bloomberg's suggestion is to raise the gasoline taxes to curb gas consumption.
Mr. Mayor, you have become a billionaire by behaving like a capitalist. Why are you now behaving like a Socialist?
Mr. Mayor, we don't need a tax to curb our gas consumption. When gas prices are too high, people cut back on gas consumption. When gas prices are lowered, people consume gas normally. It's as simple as that! Stop interfering in the economy and let the Free Market do its job!
Do you need to go back to Economics 101? If so, then please admit your ignorance. I'd hate for you to rather admit to a belief in Statism, Socialism or any other stupid collectivist ideology!
