The national debt won't pay itself.. money has to be found somewhere.. and gas price hike seems one of the most sensible method. People need to learn to value more this limited commodity.
Roads and bridges are crumbling across this country, many of the bridges for the Interstate were built 50 years ago for example. The costs in the coming decades is given in the trillions. Any new taxes on gasoline must be spent on maintaining and building infrastructure. This is why I would support a moderate increase in the taxes as long as they were all spent on infrastructure.
