Nope. My car insurance went down maybe 10% when I moved from KY to IN.

A whole lot of people seem to forget the tax we pay on every gallon of gas, and the purpose this tax was designed to serve. Which I'm pretty sure was road construction/maintenance... but is now probably diverted willy-nilly to all kinds of other programs.

The reality is in most states gas tax is not high enough to maintain or expand the road system. Louisville's project alone cost 2 billion. You'd have to dramatically increase gas tax to pay for the project in 30 years.

I was talking about the federal portion. The feds tend to impose a tax and then use it for other things. I think in Texas the total (state and fed) is 34 cents per gallon. I hate tax increases like everybody else, but would gladly accept even a 10 cent increase... which would be a dramatic increase... if they'd use it for the intended purpose.
