By raising the taxes on gasoline, it has been proposed to increase the cost of gasoline in the US to $8.00/gallon, a price similar to that charged in the rest of the world. What will be the environmental cost and benefit? What will be the political cost and benefit? What might be the social costs and benefits? How will it influence the cost of operating and by using private cars and public transportation? Who will bear the burden? Will it be equally distributed across all the workers and retired persons, across all the parts of country, across rural and urban communities? Draft a letter to your congressperson, clearly stating your stand on this issue and describe why.
