Demanding an increase in the gas tax is exactly the wrong policy. If this happens, it will mean you pay more every time you fill up your gas tank. The last thing we need during these still difficult economic times is to increase taxes on our hard-working families.
Unfortunately, politicians continue to put special interests ahead of their constituents needs. Rising taxes would put more strain on already stretched family budgets and should not be advised. Gas is a necessity for people needing to get to where they need to go and raising taxes is hurting these people the most.
