All this talk about the "burden" of an increase in the gas tax is bizarre, because gasoline prices fluctuate so often that we have become accustomed to the price changing constantly.
I hardly notice the changes anymore as they go up and then down. Increasing the gasoline tax would not be noticed by 90 percent of the population. People would only notice it if those opposing any tax made an outcry about the "burden" being placed on Virginians. However, if the price increased a few cents every day for a month, most people would just accept that as the normal ebb and flow of gas prices.
Thanks for championing the gas tax issue.
