There is no "our" when it comes to the U.S. government, it is theirs... it's Their's that they created with OUR money. Don't kid yourself.. you think
the U.S. government would willingly eliminate the need for petrol usage?
England's greatest physicist after Newton, Michael Faraday, once gave a demonstration in the early-mid 180'0's about his discoveries in
electromagnetism to William Gladstone, Chancellor of the Exchequer and future Prime Minister. Mr Gladstone asked about the value of such a useless
oddity. Faraday replied that he has no sepcific idea, but added, "One day sir, you may tax it."
So yes, they would eagerly eliminate the need for petrol usage.
Whatever is to replace petrol would be taxed equivalently, and the strategic position of the U.S. improved.
In the USA, the motive is especially strong because unlike most other nations, the U.S. government does not own most of the underground mineral
resources---they are owned by the private landowners of the surface.
