So we're getting kicked while down, already paying record hight gas prices. Our state leaders find it needed to jack the tax up another 1.5 cents a gallon. Thanks Governor.

In some effort to fund all these road projects they started with out enough money in place to pay for them, is their excuse.

The current/new administration will not be around long. You can bank on that. Maybe we should have stuck with Ernie. I guess the grass isn't always greener on the other side.

Funny how whenever you ask someone in the know where our tax dollars are going, they always say "roads and schools." The problem with that is that both roads and schools are crumbling. So who's pocket is all that "roads and schools" money going into?

You're darn right we should've stuck with Ernie! I voted for him over double dumb a** Beshear.

By the way, how do we go from an anticipated $300 million executive budget surplus for the first quarter of 2007 to an anticipated $350-400 million executive budget deficit for the second quarter of 2008? Anybody?!!!
