Much ado about Obama’s great/commonsense idea: inflate your tires and we’ll save far more oil (and you’ll save far more $$$s) than all the offshore oil drilling under McCain’s plan. It’s the Inflate Debate—sounds silly but points to two very different world views. Reduce through painless everyday measures we can do now or drill for more resources of a finite energy supply that has dangerous (read: Global Warming) side effects. Guess which side we’re on?
