The New Federal Gas Tax. Or Maybe Not.

Hennessey is confused. Not because he doesn't know how to add or subtract. It's because somebody is lying like a rug.

....administration officials were explicit: this line does not represent higher gas taxes.

I can’t come up with any policy other than a gas tax increase that might raise that much money and be described as “Bipartisan financing for Transportation Trust Fund.”

Well. If it IS a Federal gas tax, it will be ~25 cents/gallon in 2012, and about 32 cents/gal by 2015.
