That should increase tourism!

Will Bennville try for a 10% local surtax for locally purchased fuel? They could use it to fund the day care center at the middle school!

Could we get that for property taxes as well?

That would help me a lot.

My particular favorite is seeing two stations within one mile of
each other, supplied by the same distributor but with a 10cent
difference in retail pricing, especially Sunoco stations....
Vermont and upstate New York are being serviced by the same
wholesalers from the Port of Albany yet the retail prices are
all over the board.....

Should raise taxes. First only taxing rich car owners. Second need to raise taxes to get Vermont back to number one as highest taxed state after all just read we are now down to third in taxes on individual. Third in Saturday's banner said Vermont is only state were population is going down this might help even more working people to leave

That's why flatlanders stop in Massachusetts for beer, booze, smokes, food, and gas; brilliant move by Vermont's feckless politicians to increase tax revenue and support Vermont's businesses.

I know a polite way to say your post is dumb. It's cheaper and easier to move to a state not run by Ultra/Liberal/Democrat coco birds

God Damn, finally after all of these years he makes a comment
that makes fcking sense...... Opps, sorry, the weed almost fooled
my thought process.....

Once again McNutt, you live in a state with a population smaller
than Washington DC, tax revenues smaller than DC, a work force
smaller than DC, per capita income smaller than DC, but yet
DC has more people below poverty level than Vermont....
You may need the assistance of the grand kids to figure out this equation McNutt.....

Thank for your helpful commentary. Since you are commenting on something you consider useless, where does that place your worth?

Thanks for the chuckles...
