An editorial in the Spokesman-Review today points out that a gas tax isn’t the answer to our transportation budget problems. Jeez, I feel like I’ve posted this ten times before. I think everyone gets it now that less gas is being purchased due to high gas prices, more fuel efficient vehicles, alternative modes of transportation, etc. so adding more gas tax isn’t going to help a whole lot. Now the question is, what to do to make up the revenue that’s not going to come from the gas tax? So far all that’s been done is debating potential other forms of income. While I drown myself in pesimism today, you can go ahead and read the editorial and give me any great ideas you may have.
