So according to Wired Magazine, the State of California alone consumes more gas than any other country of the world!

That includes India, China or any of the fast growing economies you hear about being the cause of the high gas prices for SUV driving Americans.

So next time on CNN, MSNBC and Fox News (which I never try to watch), I hear some informed pontification on the root causes of the 70% increase of the price of oil being the ravenous gas guzzling habits of Indians and the Chinese – I will kick my TV in!

And who’s teaching who? I wonder if the White Man’s burden ever ended with the golden age of Imperialism.
