Obama: Make Higher Gas Prices the Law

Nina Easton of Fortune Magazine interviewed Senator Barack Obama and writes: "to encourage a transition toward alternatives, Obama favors legislation that would make fossil fuel more expensive. Doesn't that mean more pain to come under an Obama presidency? 'There is no doubt that in the short term, adapting to this new energy economy is going to carry some costs.'"

Senator Obama was previously quoted as saying the problem isn't high gas prices, it's that they went up too quickly. Obama said, "I think that I would have preferred a gradual adjustment" but that he felt the higher prices would lead to "a more efficient energy policy."

Senator McCain needs to take this issue and slam it out of the ballpark.
