Minnesota Public Radio‘s 89.3 The Current teamed up with The Citizens League to present Policy and a Pint, a chance to talk about, well, policy issues in an informal, beverage-sipping setting. The Thursday, July 19, 2007, discussion is all about money and oil. Yes, that would be: Policy and a Pint: The Price of Gas.Â
I’m looking for a transparent show of hands. Please share your answers to these 3 quick questions:
1. At what price-per-gallon of gas would you decide driving a car just isn’t worth it?
$3.50 / gallon
$4.00 / gallon
$5.00Â / gallon
$6.00 / gallon
Driving? I’ve already given up driving!
2. Yes or No: Can the U.S. government have a positive role in controlling the price of gas?
3. In 3 sentences: What is the most viable solution to our dependence on fossil fuels?
