With gasoline prices approaching $4.00 a gallon, U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley says he hopes people will feel the pain and take action. He understands how tough high gasoline prices are on consumers. He says he's been advocating legislation that would subsidize people moving towards hybrids and other high mileage cars. “It’s a huge impact on families. Have no question about it, and its enormously frustrating for me. In 2008, we were hitting $4.00 and folks were talking about ending our dependence on foreign oil. But as soon as the price starts to come back down, we loose that momentum.” He says our dependence on foreign oil is also a huge national security issue.
