I kinda think its just a matter of controlling us in general.
It kinda reminds me of the comment I heard about the 2nd amendment. That amendment doesn't specify what arms.
I also think of it as just another way to turn the classes upon each other. Gas becomes a luxury. How long do you think it would take for people riding the bus and watching those of you, that do well for yourselves, drive by burning your $8/gallon gas to really turn on each other?
