A letter from a reader about Modify gas tax plan
I applaud the proposal by the Princeton Project on National Security (Notebook,
Oct. 25) for a national gasoline tax that would gradually double its price at
the pump over a period of 10 years. Such a tax would indeed create a strong market
force driving the development and wider spread of alternative-fuel and more efficient
automotive technologies, thus decreasing our dependence on foreign oil.
