Good story; informative and enterprising. Yes, I agree with the story-writer that the 'subsidies are worth focusing on'. When energy industry is already making historic profits, free cash subsidy handouts doesn't make sense. I recommed this MJ story for wide readership and review.

Yes, this is a good journalistic piece. It is fairly timely, being written about a month ago. It is very current, because it is relevant to anyone that buys gas, which would be almost everyone in the U.S. The article mentions several prominent figures, mainly President Obama, Exxon (a large oil-gas company), and Solyndra, a large solar power company.
