Ya... but since when is the governemnt any good and putting resources where they can have the greatest impact. It always goes at the most abvious solution rather than the root cause because the "sheeple" as someone on here called them, can't see past the most obvious.
"Gas prices are too high and my car uses too much gas". Buy a smaller vehicle! When I was little, our family of 5 took trips in a midsized sedan with a roof top carrier. It can be done.
My home costs too much to heat. Build/buy a smaller home. I bet 25% of Americans don't even think it's possible to have a 3 bedroom home with 1-1/2 baths that's only 1100 sqft. I live in one. It's very space efficient. With modern building practices, I could easily cool it with as little as 1-1/2 tons with capacity to spare and even heat the a full basement too with a 40k BTU furnace.
We spent the last 2 decades supersizing everything. Lets get back building quality instead of quantity when possible.
