I read that some states will increase their gas tax, California 5.6 cents, Ohio 10.5 cents, Illinois will double their tax from 19 to 38 cents, S Carolina 2 cents, and Tennessee 1 cent.

Hmmm, EV's don't use gas and bybrids use less. Gov't (fed'l and state) have to make up for the "Loss" somehow. Sad.

What is the % of EVs on the road? How much % is the increase?
I mean in IL half the vehicles must be EVs to double the tax.

illinois is also taxing EV owners $248 p/y per vehicle. at the new gas tax rate of $.38 p/g. that's the equivalent of ~652 gallons of gas per year.

Great, WA should be jumping on that bandwagon soon.
Our gas isn't expensive enough on the wet side yet...

nope, doubt it. our ethically challenged governor says the money is needed for capital projects, bill paying and the like. he likely wanted to describe them as “shovel ready” but thought better of it. the legislature in their infinite wisdom re-directed a portion of the anticipated revenue into their own pockets in the form of a pay raise.

We all know taxes don't go down, they only go up.

Pennsylvania still holds the honor of the highest gas tax, 58 cents.
I believe we will have 'slight' increases in 2020, if not before.

Yet they keep getting re-elected everywhere. Used to love the union meetings, listening to the B&M session about the latest round of tax increases. Then come election day who is endorsed? What a crock of ****.

Wait until they get the carbon bandwagon wound up.

We never learn.

NJ had the lowest gas prices in the North-East, people from PA, NJ, DE
used to cross the border to fill up their tanks. Great, more tax
revenue for NJ.

So what did our illustrious leaders do? they raised the gas tax by
23c.

So people from PA, NJ, DE stopped filling their tanks in NJ. Result? Tax revenues are down. No sh*t.
I'm not an economist but I could have figured that out.

So what do we do ? we elect a governor who promises to raise taxes.

Are we stupid or what?

Oh and that 23c tax increase was supposed to be temporary and offset
by a reduction in sales tax. So what do you think happened to the
sales tax?

Are we stupid or what?
