Not to mention that every country besides the U.S. uses the metric system. Heh, but the only way it's communist is if communist is now a slang synonym for "easy and efficient."
I think this would be a great idea as it would obviously, work. Supply and demand, basic economic principles. The problem is that it's not realistic in the least. Even if all the people that have read this email actually took it's advice, it still wouldn't make any difference, considering the amount of people in the country.
But, if gas prices are really killing you, there are a few things you can do about it, like others mentioned. Public transportation, buying a hybrid car, buying a small car in general (Honda Accord, for instance), or just telling your buddy with the huge SUV to cut the crap.
