Deep Thought

Not sure why this popped into my head (I think I was reading a policy blog) but I never hear it pointed out that because the cost of oil production is heavily subsidized the cost of gas is actually much higher than people realize. We pay a large percentage of the cost in taxes that end up used to support oil production.

Which means that those of us who don't drive very much subsidize drivers who do.. which is something to keep in mind the next time a driver or anti-bike yapper shouts off about how we don't pay our fair share of the road.
