McCain | Vote for the Other Guy

mccain's obama tiregaugeMcCain's campaign is still trying to make fun of Obama's suggestion that keeping our cars and tires tuned up will save us over a billion gallons of oil a year. The thing is, it's true. Even President Bush's Highway Traffic Safety Department agrees.

So what brainiac is responsible for giving away an Obama tireguage for a $25 donation to the McCain campaign? Worse yet, it's not branded "Vote McCain," but "Obama's Energy Plan." That way, when people using the tireguage discover that they are indeed saving money on gas, they'll know who is responsible for the savings - Obama.

Here's what scientists have to say,
The study indicates that substantial benefits would accrue if car care facilities systematically offered complimentary tire pressure checks with oil changes including: (i) increased safety by decreasing all crashes and saving more than 100 lives per year, (ii) reduced petroleum consumption by over a billion gallons/year, which would (iia) provide over $4 billion in economic savings for US consumers that could in part be recouped in retail/auto-care facilities, (iib) reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 13.5 million tons and automobile pollution and (iic) enhance national security.
Gee. Thanks, McCain!
