$4 a gallon gas price is nothing compared to elsewhere in the world. Take a look at http://money.cnn.com/pf/features/lists/global _gasprices/

As for using a D block to build a nationwide public safety network, I'm all for it. It needs to be secure too so that it cannot be monitored by the criminals but the long-haul truckers should be able to access it to report accidents and things like that.

as a great an idea as a public safety network would be, it just doesn't seem practical to me. private companies don't want it b/c there is litle if any money to behad, and lets face it, shareholders want their retirement nestegg, (i do!i mean who doesn't want their 401k or roth IRA to grow?) therefore private companies aren't likely to risk their assets. and a governement subsidized telecom network would be dismal at best and the inefficiency would defeat the safety concern of it. am i off base here?

No, you've pretty much said it in a nutshell. It would take some very rich people who are committed to making it work and that would take a lot of money. I don't see it happening in a beneficial way anytime soon.
