10. As the OP points out, if you have plenty of $ you can continue to do all these things unaffected...
... your comments are willfully obtuse.

You would proffer that allowing those with plenty of money to have access to all the gasoline they want from a scarce supply to burn in low efficiency SUVs is fine with you, even if it means a low wage earner will lose their job because they can no longer afford to buy gasoline at the inflated price to keep their job.

WHich is more important? The rich be insulated from any and all inconveniences of a scarce gasoline supply, or a working poor family being able to hold onto to their job and put food on the table? I guess you could ponder that while you 'drive 150 miles to soak in some natural beauty and get exercise."

IF you are serious about having a 'civil discussion' and this is your position, you really don't have to say anything else. We can discern exactly what you think of shared sacrifice in a democracy. Those with the money should get what they want, when they want it, and forget those less well off who do not have the same options.
