What's The Democrats Plan For High Gas Prices?

To increase taxes on gas by 10 cents a gallon of course. Is this not unbelievable? The expansion of government and their power is all that matters to democrats.

Despite calls from the presidential campaign trail for a Memorial Day-to-Labor Day tax freeze, lawmakers quickly concluded — with a prod from the construction industry — that having $9 billion less to spend on highways could create a pre-election specter of thousands of lost jobs.

Now, lawmakers quietly are talking about raising fuel taxes by a dime from the current 18.4 cents a gallon on gasoline and 24.3 cents on diesel fuel.

They are going to keep going until the only way we can travel is by foot, bike or horse.

Think I will get a bike, can't afford to keep a horse. I do believe that most people today are driving less than they have in years past.

Increasing taxes on gasoline will only make it go up, not down. What's wrong with these dumb people? Increasing taxes can in no way cause the average driver to NEED to drive less.
