Your comment of realistic prices only support the argument that the gov't screw both business and individual by having transportation cost increase everything from food to the prices of goods since everything in this global economy is shipped from some place.

This is how gov't who think is all knowing screw with individual liberty by making even the simplicity of car ownership be out of the reach of most people.
