100. but it's not the ECONOMY that * cares about. It's oil company profits.
It has nothing to do with the economy, but how the wealth and profits are distributed. If our government really wanted to see a change in energy usage, they could come up with a set of taxes and incentives to make it economically feasible, but it would come at the expense of the profits of the current system's winners.

Of course, the mainstream press won't call * and company on this, but instead will parrot their disingenuous cries of "bad for the economy and jobs".
