And, how do you propose changing the driving distances - you know - those who live 80 miles from a town - often they are farming so don't even suggest they move closer

Etc
My recreational boat uses a sail. 12 gallons a week. Whatever you want to use it for.

Now how does nuclear power affect the amount of gasoline people have?

All the oil companies want to build.... They don't. Gasoline consumption in the US will be going down.

Here - our recreational boats have motors - and we ski behind them

What about the motorhomes, travel trailers etc? You want everyone to give those up?

And, are you supportive of not bring crops to market either?

Thanks but, I'll continue to use my 60 to 80 gallons (or more) per week. Suits our lifestyle just fine. Let's see - gotta fill up the aircraft - thats around 100 gallons ...... Yep - works for me

You should look back over the last 30 years. The EPA's had all of about 2-3 applications for greenfield plants. The oil companies put their money into expanding capacity at existing refineries and they've done quite a bit of that. Surprise!

So - how about those motorhomes and travel trailers and boats? You want everyone to give them up? And what about all those people you want to now put out of work? What about them?
