I paid $2.48 for gas in Roseville, Ca. That seems pretty darned good to me even with a 12 cent tax. Who knows, I might go 6 months without a wheel alignment if they fix some of the roads with the SB1 money.

Gas is cheaper because oil is cheaper right now. Don't complain about it. Enjoy it while it lasts.

I'm also enjoying driving on better roads, thanks to the gas tax. At least that's a tax I can see and experience the benefits of with my own eyes and vehicle, not having to dodge as many pot holes.

I think this might be the thread that wouldn't die....

Every time I see a road worker there is 6 of them standing around and one working. This is your tax money. I was a machinist and I had to work every minute of the working day or get fired. Public employees can't get fired and don't have to do a darn thing.

V8 Vega: This is your tax money.

I Would guess V8 Vega meant California Tax payers' tax money.

Just got back from 8888+ miles road trip. There are states with bad roads and states with good roads. Kentucky impressed me the most. Their freeways smooth like a silk.

Do other states build roads without tax payers' money? Which states?

If the answer is all roads(most of them) are payed by tax payers' money, then what kind of line is This is your tax money.?

What does This is your tax money. mean?

The real question is how much tax is enough to build good roads?

Why would anyone avoid this reasonable question? For what purpose? To what motive?....

California has the 2nd highest gas tax in the country yet has some of the worst roads. Texas's gas tax is less than 1/4 of California's yet has much better roads.
