Shocked? I'm way over that! Double my DMV fees and I'm spending $1,000 per year extra to register vehicles!To have the privilege of driving on the over-congested freeways and potholed secondary roads! AND get slapped with extra taxes on the fuel. Oh, and don't forget the extra sales tax on auto parts, as well as everything else.
THEN the governator has issued pink slips to some state employees...the last time they tried that trick, the pinks were issued to vacant positions!
OMG, don't get me started...LOL!
Screw it...can't get out of here fast enough...

How many cars do you have and what value are you using? I have two newer cars and entered the total of their sticker prices ($70,000) and got a $350/yr increase. If your cars had high sticker prices but are a few years old, it may not be as bad as you think since the tax gets less as the cars age.

$558.00 ($312.00 in gasoline taxes) I'll be interested in seeing californians going crazy when gas prices spike again.
O well at least the new $400.00 federal tax credit will offset most of my cost.

OK, there are the following machines:
'05 Diesel Dodge 2500 4x4 @ $450/year - work vehicle
'81 VW Rabbit Diesel LS @ $55/year - pleasure/collector vehicle
1977 Corvette @ $120/year - hot ride vehicle
1986 GMC 3/4 pickup truck @ $100/year - farm tractor vehicle
1973 Jeep CJ5 (for sale!) @ $100/year - rock crawler potential vehicle
1987 Ford Bronco 4x4 (for sale!) @ $100/year - yard dog tractor vehicle
2001 Nissan Xterra @ $160/year - pleasure desert machine vehicle
I may be off by a few dollars regarding my new fees...but it's a wicked increase nonetheless.
Oregon tags will be the same for all the vehicles we choose to keep...$26.00/year, whether the $55,000 truck or the 1981 Rabbit. Yep! And no 60% penalty for being late with your renewal!

I drive a hybrid so my registration isn't too bad, but this is take more money of our my families one income pocket for sure! We're moving back to CA in 3 weeks and we're trying to live frugally which is going to be even more necessary with these proposed tax hikes. I think there are probably social programs that could be reduced and we'd know what those were if there were more transparency in government funded programs.

I consider myself to be an environmentalist who cares deeply about this planet. I can't help but find many of the side effects of this economic downturn to be positive for the Earth (people driving less, downsizing cars/houses, carpooling, buying less, flying less, eating out less etc...) We have become a society who is so obsessed with obtaining material items and our laziness to even cook for ourselves has created an obesity epidemic! There was no way to sustain an economy that is addicted to growth. Growth = waste People are starting to pay more attention to where they spend their hard earned dollars and rightfully so!

You see that's the sad part. The federal government is trying to stimulate the economy by giving taxpayers a little extra money to spend. However the state is taking it away with these new tax increases.

The end result is that Californians will not be able to participate in this federal stimulus plan.
