The US is already blessed with some of the cheapest at the pump gas prices. Canadians typically pay X 1.5-to-2 more for gas, and our EU friends from across the pond pay X 2-to-3 more for gas.

Next step is a tax on farts...you know to reduce GHG emissions & help climate change, due to the cheeseburger diet

And here's a bit more environmental awareness:

Pee in a flat container and let it dry out, to the appropriate concentration, voila instant DEF jam.

Some truckers in my country were ruining the cores of the SCR systems using urine instead of the standard DEF, due to residual amounts of uric acid and sodium chloride.
