Another Taxing Matter

Now that gas prices have reached $3.30 and up in the Pasadena area, can we now have some serious discussion about lowering the state and federal gas taxes?

The gas tax hike was a Glendening-era program designed to hike taxes on fossil fuels, presumably for envrionmental purposes to reduce fuel consumption. Well, that has not happened. Instead, families are being forced to make choices between luxury items and common necessities, or gas in order to make it to work or soccer practice.

The taxpayers need relief from gas prices. Instead of launching investigations, the easiest way to do that is to cut the gas taxes and pass the savings on to th taxpayer.
