Holy Gosh, I really now know we have entered a Brave New World. Here is now what the free-market in energy and transportation is all about (sorry Msrs. Friedman and Hayek for have done such a poor job …):
Let’s open our market to good old American competition. Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman stressed that the foremost economic duty of government is to eliminate cartel pricing. Bills are now pending in both houses of the Congress (HR 1687 and S1603) that seek to do exactly that by requiring car makers to enable fuel competition in their own product lines—adding flex-fuel, all electric, hybrid electric, or any other way auto makers choose to implement the law.
