One simple way to reduce oil consumption, reduce pollution, reduce airport delays, and reduce noise levels is to - Ban ALL Private and Corporate Jets, Planes, and Helicopters including TV news station copters.
The one exception is heliports in major cities like NYC.
These damn things are one of the largest problems in existent today !!!
They are also one of the biggest national security issues and easy to use for both drug traffickers and terrorist.
The easiest way to eliminate these menace is to charge $50.00 per gallon for fuel, plus 10 times the landing and take-off fees at all airports that commercial jets pay. Wow what a way to get a tax on those who should be paying their FAIR Share anyway!
