Is this the way of the future?

In a recent Age article, American Christians are described as praying at the pump for cheaper petrol. I know what they really wish is for governments to remove what they see as illegitimate excise taxes on petrol. I equally well know that this viewpoint that petrol should be tax-free is held by the majority of the coming generation of Australians - almost all raised in very traditional religious families.

So, what I suggest is that people are aware that prayers for completely tax-free fuel (which would now cost around $0.90 a litre) will come very soon to outer suburban Australia. Even more if predictions that the Budget being released now will make petrol a little less cheap through the removal of tax exemptions on condensates.
