Some lawmakers think it is too much; others have condemned it as too little. Gasoline dealers think it will hurt business.

What is public transportation and why do I have to pay for it? We don't have state provided public transportation in my town. I don't use the 'T' but I guess I have to fund it so people that do use it can have people that don't use it pay part of their fare. I'm a big supporter of user fees. I think they should raise the gas tax another 10 cents so I can get 50% discounts at the super market and the utility companies.

"A recent report from the Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center estimated that if the gasoline tax had been indexed to inflation in 1991, it would be 36 cents per gallon today."

MA now has a gas tax of 24 cents a gallon, NH has a gas tax of 19.6 cents a gallon.

You're really going to drive to NH to buys gas for a savings of 4.4 cents per gallon? On an average tank of 16 gallons that would amount to 70.4 cents. You are not the brightest, are you Wondering?

1. If they raise the tax the savings would be 7.4 cents, not 4.4 cents. An arithmetic wiz you aren't.
2. My town borders NH. I'm there 2 or 3 times each week anyway.
3. Beyond the 7.4 cents, it's a decision on who gets the tax.

Now get back to your alphabet blocks. Build something nice for your Mom.
