California Gas Prices Expected To Reach $4 A Gallon
I gotta say that $4 isn't that big of a deal and so I'm not concerned, but I know some people who are already obsessing...

sandman: Four dollar gas doesn't really concern me much at all. Tax based on usage is the best way to fund road repairs and improvements. The more gas used, the more tax you pay. It's simple as that. Taxation based on usage encourages people to use efficient cars while allowing those who can afford it to drive gas guzzlers. It's freedom and democracy in action!

I don't mind paying inflated gas tax if it is not being wasted. If it goes to road repair and not pension plans. Pension plans should come out of the general fund. Rather than audit where the monies go and make sure there not being wasted Moonbeam just raises the tax.
