Daily “You’re Not Paying Enough For Gas” Report

From a bunch of guys in suits, likely not wearing Birkenstocks:

Members of the Journal’s CEO Council tasked with discussing priorities for the U.S. economy and finance offered several fairly uncontroversial suggestions to the incoming administration: implement a fiscal stimulus plan without worsening the long-term deficit, appoint a panel to address financial regulation, create an economic vision.

Tucked away in the proposal, in the category of long-term tax policy, was this political grenade: “consider raising taxes on gasoline.”

Thanks to John Whitehead for bringing this to my attention.
