    Stephen, I take your point about pulling off the band-aid slowly, but I guess my question centers more on political viability than on the potential efficacy of a gasoline-price floor.

    Considering the ease with which candidates for office fanned up a blaze of populist political hysteria when gas went to $4/gallon, I’m wondering what combination of circumstances would lead Congress to enact such a price floor.

    Meanwhile, I’m confident you know more about the policy options than I do (you’d almost have to, given how little I know!). What other proposals are worth looking at, do you think?
