The President wants us to cut the amount of gas we use.

The best way to stop using so much gas is to deport 11 million illegal immigrants!
That would be 11 million less people using our gas.
The price of gas would come down.
Dont you think this is a good solution to both the problems.

If all the people in the US cut their gasoline consumption by 25%...

The oil companies would just raise the prices because they weren't making enough profit...

I'm guessing most illegal immigrants don't drive. In Boston, you have like 15 Brazilians living in one apartment.
I'm with Bee, all of a sudden gas is cheaper?? The gas companies definately set the price and they would just raise it to account for your immigrants being gone.
We're down to about $2.19 regular here. It's kind of funny how it's still way more expensive than gas was a year ago, yet people are psyched because it's under $3.

Doubled edged sword... Yes, they would be on bikes... but at least they wouldn't be in a 3,000lbs vehicle with a Big Mac in one hand, a cell phone in the other, and changing the radio station with their big toe...

I'd rather get run down by a HD sportster (cuz thats what most would buy probably, brainwashing does have its bonuses ) than a Yukonurangoplorer type!

The first one wasn't that roomy despite its size.

They would find an excuse to raise it back.
