And can someone hold he door for Valerie Longhurst then let go of it so it hits her on her way out?

If the gas tax had gone in place  January 1st,  Gas would have paused one week before dropping lower…  Instead of going:

  • $2.69
  • $2.59
  • $2.49
  • $2.39
  • $2.29
  • $2.19

it would have gone like this….

  • $2.69
  • $2.59
  • $2.49
  • $2.39
  • $2.39
  • $2. 29

Did you see the difference?  You would’t have if you weren’t paying attention at the pump…

Now, look at what we are losing…

  • No construction projects to alleviate blockage on SR 1 south of the mall
  • No construction projects to move traffic around Middletown.
  • No money to fix pot holes causing $88 dollars of damage every time you hit one…
  • Road construction companies idling their employees over lack of contracts.

And one major asset for having this gas tax passed?   40% of it will be paid from people just passing through who get gas.  There has never been a better tax.

And everyone is begging  for more taxes now; more taxes make for more prosperity… Schools need more taxes. inner Cities need more taxes, the County needs more taxes, all of which get spend and then go right into our pockets.

But due to some lack of wisdom in Valerie Longhurst. the time for a new tax came and went…  If we were paying $3.55 a gallon then, we’d be paying $1.99 a cheap gallon today.  No one will miss ten cents.

This should be the first bill put up in Both state houses.
