Invest in alternative energy sources. Give everybody electric vehicles. That way, we wouldn't need so much gas, and we'd save money.


LGDB:  We certainly agree here.   I'd go you one further and totally nationalize the fossil fuel industry to facilitate the transfer.  But that's a certainly a long term plan. It probably won't pay the kinds of deflationary dividends for, what, two to four years at the earliest?  And that's of course if Democrats had enough votes (even in their own party) for such a massive infrastructural overhaul... which they don't.  Not to mention they're very like about to lose the House and maybe the Senate, and the heavy voting odds are against Dems in 2024 as well.   If I were Biden I wouldn't be banking on any solutions that take a couple of years to see returns.

That may be true, unfortunately. But if you want a magical, instant, quick-fix solution then I'm not sure what to tell you.
