Energy Legislation – Flexible Fuel Taxation, Reduce Reliance on Trading Markets, Car Powering Batteries,

 

   Apeciating what we have is an important part of the future.  I like what you have done, and are looking to do.  I have a few suggestions to build on past legislation.  I would look at flexible taxation for oil consumers as part of the strategy to better match an educated understanding of reality.  Oil and Gas corporations have a duty to share holders to maximize profits, and this is often in contrast with doing what is best for consumers.  Two thirds of all U.S corporations paid 0 dollars in federal taxes last year.  Corporations influence the government in some cases in ways that lead to much suffering for some people.  The government should pass legislation to use a flexible taxation policy.    This would include taking no taxes when gas trades above say a fixed price of $3, and would take taxes on gas when the price was below $3 keeping the price constant to the consumer, and business alike.  Nothing makes someone more angry than when they feel they have been tricked.  

   Encourage sharing, and less greed.  Many Americans or shall I say most grow up looking for unrealistic riches.   Most follow all the rules, and then are greatly distressed when they do not achieve the great riches.  In many cases people can not meet basic needs.  We can learn from China the happiest nation on the planet in the sense that realistic expectations leads to the greatest happiness.   Predictable energy prices are an important part of developing our society to reach potential.  
      Taxes revenue can be collected when oil is lower than target maintaining the price at $3.  Tax revenue and debt reconciliation of balance sheets should occur currently recognizing profits not traditionally recognized by idle valuable lands.  Money threatens to become distorted by large entities + nations that want to build assets long term through accumulating massive amounts of debt dollars.  Taxes collected can be used to pay government expenses, even profits to corporations, and other community projects.

    Trading markets are overly concerned  with profits, and have long been non-profit enterprises to keep markets functions.  Large funds of money can become very disruptive, non-functioning.  Government needs to become competitive in a constructive way with these large money funds to protect the citizens’ of the world.  Government should negotiate long term contracts with other nations like Canada + Russia + Venezuela, to supply oil and cut out all the dealers + unneeded markets that have proved disruptive, and threaten long term stability.  

Oil prices went to low in the 1980’s and many technologies were forced to be shelved.  Prices going to low is counterproductive.  Energy policy legislation  should look at using batteries to power cars.   The use of battery powered cars eliminates much of the pollution, and cars may travel three times as far on comparable energy consumption.   Current cars can be modified, and gas stations can be modified to change batteries instead of pump gasoline.
