    The oil companies will only pass along the cost of the tax to consumers. The headline should read, "House OKs new taxes on drivers and consumers who purchase goods shipped by planes, trains, or trucks."

    The oil Companies already pay more taxes than 50% or the public combined. With economic morons in charge of the house and senate look for 10 dollar gas soon.
