True Cost of Gasoline, artificial subsidies

True Cost of Gasoline artificial subsidies: "So you think you're getting a good deal on a tank of gasoline these days?

Such external costs push the true price of gasoline as high as $15.14 a gallon, according to a new report released by the International Centre for Technology Assessment.

"In reality, the external costs of using our cars are much higher than we may realize," the Washington-based research group said in its report."
