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?
Ding ding ding...I agree with you and Plato2k5. This plays right into what the government wants the public to be driving.
People can say all they want about free market setting the price - but if that were the case, someone explain the price increase amid fallen demand. I know it's not that simple, but seriously....wtf?
