Families need to pay more in gasoline taxes?
A cabal of special interest groups seems to have convinced Wyoming’s governor and more than a few legislators that families need to pay more in gasoline taxes. But with the possibility of a Taxmageddon hitting already overburdened families in January, the last thing the legislature should be doing is hiking fuel taxes.
True, Wyoming needs a long-term source of funding for roads, but if politicians really believe road construction and maintenance is part of the fundamental role of government, and they have doubled spending over the past 10 years, and they still don’t have enough money for roads, perhaps the problem is systemic and more money won’t fix it.
