I agree with all of your ideas but I would add a tax incentive for motorcycles and scooters but I am sure some will be against that. Also folks need to factor in the political and military costs of Middle Eastern Oil. My opinion is that we have to comprimise our ideals too much for oil. We end up getting in bed with the Saudis and other Arab monarch like states who opress women and other minorities. We spend a fortune in keeping the miltary on site in the Gulf. The cost of foreign oil is not totally reflected in the price per barrel I am a conservative by the way and a vet. I don't think we can afford running around the globe fighting wars to protect oil (Iraq, weapons of mass destruction is a cover for lets protect oil). Eventually we are going to get burned by that strategy. I don't want to have young kids die over something like oil. Especially when we can do something about it.
