That’s right. In a press release he issued today, one of the ways Governor Perdue suggested conserving fuel with the current shortage of gasoline, was to “Inflate your tires: Keeping tires properly inflated improves gas mileage” among other measures such as slowing down and driving a automobile with better gas mileage.
He’s right, you know, keeping your tires inflated properly will conserve 3 times more fuel than can be produced by drilling off the coast of the United States and would result in instant savings, rather than something that might be produced 10 years down the road.
But of course John McCain and others in the GOP, the Grand Oil Party, would rather shout “drill baby drill” instead of conserving and ending our addiction to oil in the first place, keeping us in the dark age instead of producing new forms of energy that will be cleaner, cheaper, and domestically produced.
