No one likes paying taxes, and all of us are tired of high prices at the gas pumps.
But we also hate potholes and getting stuck behind a slow driver we can’t pass on narrow, winding roads.
Sorry folks, we can’t have it both ways.
The state gas tax is set to drop 4.3 cents per gallon Jan. 1. That means motorists will be paying 27.6 cents per gallon, down from the current 31.9 cents. That rate is set by a formula tied to the wholesale cost of fuel, and we are entering the fifth quarter of falling gas tax revenue.
