The Democrats apparently feel as though $4.00 a gallon (and $8.55 in that unfortunate Alaskan town) gasoline isn't expensive enough. So, with oil still hovering in record territory, they are proposing a HIKE in the gas tax: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,386643,00.html. Honestly, how can people see them as being better handlers of the economy? Their response to people who are struggling to pay the current price of gasoline is to ask them to pay more????
