Federal excise tax on gas doesn't even begin to cover all the funds doled out to states for highway maintenance and disaster relief. A lot of it still comes from federal income tax. Try again, butthead.

1984: Grace Commission Report under Ronald Reagan showed IRS is a fraud that collects taxes for the Banking Dynasties

"100% of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal Debt ... all
individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services
taxpayers expect from government."

President Obama wants Congress to quickly pass an
unconditioned extension of the federal gasoline tax, which is set
to expire at the end of the government’s fiscal year on Sept. 30.
The federal gas tax has been 18.4 cents per gallon since 1993
and generates more than $32 billion a year that is then mostly
passed out to states for road construction and repair. About 15
percent goes to other federal efforts, like subsidizing public
transportation or other efforts to discourage driving. The average
American motorist pays about $100 a year in the federal tax.
Conservatives in Congress want to cut out the federal middleman
and allow states to raise and spend their own road money. Not
only would letting states collect the taxes directly reduce the
money spent on federal behavioral engineering efforts (bike paths
etc.), but would also allow states to avoid federal laws that
require union workers be used on highway projects.
House Republicans already made a big change to the way
highway dollars are allocated. Before the 2010 “shellacking” the
Highway Trust Fund was a slushy spot. Influential appropriators
worked hard to get the first spade full of dirt turned over on
decades-long projects in their districts because they knew that
they could, in essence, obligate the federal government. Then
when bills came due, the Trust Fund would have to get a bailout
from general revenues in order to complete already authorized
projects.
Under the new Boehner rules, big projects have to be accounted
for. Start a $10 billion project, budget $10 billion.
This has changed the way the highway appropriations process
works. While fewer projects are being started, the intention is that
more will be completed and that costs will be more predictable.
Old-line appropriators resisted, to say nothing of complaints from
contractors and unions who preferred the less-rigid requirements
of the previous process.

Programmers have studied the system and all of its faults, beyond my rhelm.
There was a great NY Times article a few days ago on it. And the bottom line was
1. Its a mess
2. Most roll outs are a mess
3. It lacked project coordination, mainly because the vendors were scared of the cumbersome procurement standards, ironically put in place to guard against excesses such as Haliburton last decade.
4. Its repairable

Butthead,

My ancestors built them too. They were paid for their services by tax dollars. Today, as you stated, the roads need to continue to be maintained, again funded by tax dollars. But because you don't pay federal taxes, you're not paying your full, fair share of that maintenance cost even though you continue to use the roads, ergo, you are a MOOCH.
