since it hasnt been raised in 15 years the feds are discussing raising it 10 cents per gal. MINIMUM. I get the "lack of money for continued repairs and improvement" I get it since we lack money for a new roof and other home repairs. What I dont get is how "we" have money to send over seas to help rebuild places we have destroyed and places we havent been near. Yet now "we" have no money to take care of ou own roads. I am so frustrated with this country and the people running it into the ground on all levels. What is it going to take for more people to get mad and do something about it? A 40cent federal gas tax hike??
