Sorry but that changes dramatically with the rise in price of fuel. Europe is a perfect example. When I lived there we used our car for local running because we could buy fuel on the base for a third the price of local gas staions. Any time we were going any distance we went by train. It was that much cheaper.
The liberals are correct in how they want to deal with this. If you ban something you create a black market. If you raise the cost while offering a cheaper option people will flock to that option and after awhile people whowere opposed get used to it or die off from old age. I don't personally like that method but will not deny that it works.
