I have a practical solution to the problem.  And it isn't something I just 
now came up with regarding this debate.  I think there should be two separate 
gasoline pumping areas at a gasoline station with dedicated pumps.   One area 
would be for automobiles that were rated for 30+ miles per gallon at the 
going gasoline rate of, say, $1.35 a gallon (regular) or less.  The other 
would be for automobiles that were rated for under 30 mpg, and the per gallon 
rate would be in the neighborhood of $1.60-$1.80 or so.  

My philosophy is that if you make the choice to drive a hog, then you should 
pay the price.
