What does everyone think about the proposed gas tax "break" some are thinking about.

Apparently it will save us between about, in the ball park range, approximately 50 to 75 dollars this summer.

Seems like a waste of administration time, labor time, wages, computer glitches, paperwork, to me.

Just wondered what everyone else thinks.

It will also reduce the amount of money available for road maintenance, and we all know how much we need that. I think the tax break is a bad idea. Why can't these supposedly bright politicians come up with an actual plan that will work?!

It's a "feel good" idea that the politicians came up with which is actually a stupid thing to do. Like it or not, our roads need to be maintained and that costs money.

IMO.
I think they are going to do just the opposite.
The federal tax on gas which is at 18.4 cpg will be increased ten fold.
