The true cost of gasoline

The Center for Investigative Reporting has put together an interesting 5 min video explaining the true cost of gasoline to the American public. While gas may be hovering around $4 a gallon in the U.S. in recent weeks (still well below the price in Canada and European countries), the video explains how Americans are really paying closer to $15 a gallon through costs such as health impacts due to auto pollution, the clean-up costs for spills and accidents, and reduced crop yields due to pollution. Worth a view.
