Raise the gas tax

From Mike Thomas at Orlando Sentinel

We use about 25% of the world's oil. This tremendous demand keeps prices up, which means billions of dollars flowing into the Middle East. Some of that money finds its way to the extremist groups trying to destroy us. The Iraq Study Group noted that insurgents get money from Saudi individuals and others in the region. These "individuals'' certainly don't get their money from bake sales. We actually are funding both sides in the War on Terror. We are helping pay for the car bombs and missiles being used against our troops.
