Fashion a piggy bank in the shape of a gas pump. When you deposit money into it, a voice chip responds with a note of praise. Whenever you pull the hose to get money out, another chip answers in the dialect of a west Texas oil baron, "GOTCHA!" It would be great motivation to move toward a fuel-conserving lifestyle.

They could be made in China for cheap and sold at Wal-Mart... this years big Christmas gift idea.

       There might be a slight problem of this giving out mixed messages here...   

       "Give Money To Oil Company" (praise).   

       I like the way you have specified two chips for this - one good chip , and one bad chip ;-)
