@Jon Morgan: How long it takes US drivers to reduce their gas consumption by 20% isn't really central to my point...
The fleet will have to be replaced fully reap improved efficiency. This takes around 15 years. In the short term (< 1 year), tax revenues rise and fall with price, which can fluctuate by a factor of 1.5. The result is that the revenues go up and down about 50% over a few months -- they will be LESS stable than they are now.
