Abstract: I was struck by the resigned mood of the N&R’s Oct. 5 editorial (“Will It Take Gas Lines to Remind Us to Conserve?”), which bemoaned the fact that people don’t buy fuel- efficient cars any more. If we really want to encourage conservation, there’s a sure-fire solution: raise gasoline taxes.
