Earth Day Founder's Daughter Says Gas Prices Not Too High

MADSION, Wis. -- The daughter of the founder of Earth Day says she doesn't think gasoline prices are too high.

Tia Nelson, the daughter of former U.S. Sen. Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, said "we pay less for a gallon of gas than anywhere else in the world. And if we paid what the Europeans paid we'd wouldn't be driving vehicles that got 12 miles a gallon."

She said that if there's a silver lining in the higher gas prices, it's that people are driving less and companies are being forced to think about being more efficient.

Saturday is the 37th annual observance of Earth Day -- the first without Gaylord Nelson, who died last July.

Tia Nelson said it's a bittersweet day for her family but added that they are grateful his legacy lives on.

I wonder what type of car Ms. Nelson drives and where she lives. Betcha she is a typical left wing hypocrit, just like John Kerry and Al Gore.

I wonder if the Corporate Income Tax Exxon will pay is close to the carbon tax Clinton/Gore wanted to impose?

I think she also doesn't have the facts right. Also typical. Ask her what a gallon of gas in Kuwait costs. She is right about europe though. Italy it's around $8/gallon. Holland between $6 and $7. BUT, they also have PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION. They can live, work and buy their staples without having to have a vehicle. How many Mainahs can say that? How many other rural states? Way of life baby. Can't make the comparison. Just because they have to pay it doesn't mean it's right for here.
