There is very little, if anything, that can be done about gasoline prices in the short term. The biggest problem with the energy bill is that it still doesn't allow drilling in the arctic.
Additionally, refinery capacity is needed to refine more oil into gasoline but it's been years since a new refinery was built in the US. A lot of NIMBY going on there----by a lot of people that clamor for more gasoline.
