Reinventing the Wheel

Written by Jim Motavalli

What does it really cost us to have cars o­n the road when you factor in all the hidden costs?  According to the International Center for Technology Assessment, a gallon of gasoline actually costs $15.14 when billions of federal and state tax breaks, subsidies, regulations, pollution cleanup costs, and other factors are added up.  We are all paying a lot more for gasoline than the price at the pump.  There's a reason that people in Europe or Japan pay $5 a gallon for gasoline.
