9. God forbid we raise the federal gas tax
Much better to watch gas prices spike, and know that all that extra money will go to line the overstuffed pockets of Big Oil executives, who will undoubtedly buy a lot of swell stuff with it. Maybe they'll show it on teevee from time to time, and we can all enjoy looking at their fourth or fifth homes, private jets, or fancy yachts.

But raise the federal gas tax for the first time in 17 years, and use the money for something other than keeping a fatcat's mistress? Unamerican! By the way, if the federal gas tax went up 50%, how much more would you pay for a 12 gallon fill up?

A. Over $10
B. $7.20
C. $3.84
D. $1.08
