$2.50 plus what?

The problem of course is, $2.50 plus what?

Who should die so we can fill up our cars for $2.50/gallon?  We don't want it to be anyone we know of course.  Just make sure the people that die aren't anyone we know, okay?

These are the campaign promises that American presidential candidates have resorted to.
