Here is a concept:
1. Stop buying foreign oil and use what we are sitting on. US to regulate the fuel prices and to make a new law that oil companies can only make 5-10% profitability to stop gauging you and I. This may help keep the economy in check. Stop the lobbysts who protect the oil boys. I am guessing that rising fuel cost are better than 80% of the reason that all prices are increasing. Control the root cause to control the economy.
2. Stop spending billions on this war. Control spending by pulling the troops and fortefying our borders if terrorism is such a concern. Let's be honest here. We are over there to protect our oil resources because we are so dependent on it. Reduce the dependancy to reduce the risks and save lives as well.
