Dear Obama; Dear McCain

Dear President-elect (whoever you are),

I think the government should make the interest people pay on their loans tax deductable for cars that get over 40 mpg tax.

Of the 21 million barrels of oil a day we use, 13 million is imported. People could choose to declare war on OPEC by cutting their fuel use by 50%. The simple way to do this is make sure the next car gets twice the mileage as their current vehicle. In addition to ridesharing, mass transit, combining trips, etc. Get the 50% less use by combining these sorts of things. And let the government pitch in with tax policy that encourages car buyers to consider the 40 mpg cars or better.
