Windfall profits? They are taking steps at the right direction but not solving the problem. The problem is how the oil companies have us by the balls. Not to forget the hostile countries we use oil from. Like Saudi Arabia, which frequently funds al Qaeda. How about Hugo Chavez and Venezuela, who owns Citgo?
The sooner America moves to better sources, hell more American sources, the better.
Ethanol from corn. Its renewable and can provide lots of money and jobs in America instead of funding Osama's next attack or stroking Hugo Chavez's ego along with making deals with his butt buddy, Fidel Castro.
Another source is Biodiesel. A 1:1 conversion of raw products to energy that is formed from animal fats. The large cattle and hog industry will benefit greatly from this.
