These are our elected officials at work. With gas prices getting so high, let's not look into ways of lowering gas prices or investing in alternative fuel sources, the US Senate has decided that the best solution is to give every US taxpayer a $100 coupon for gas (which will then go directly to the oil companies).
Does anyone else see a flaw in logic here? There's nothing better we could do with approximately $13 billion*? Besides, with a $100 coupon, I'm not sure I could even fill up my tank more than twice at current prices.
