No Movement on Gas Tax Hike

State lawmakers did not reach a decision on raising the gas tax Monday. The Senate adjourned without voting. The plan would more than double the gas tax to pay to fix Michigan roads. Right now it's 19-cents a gallon. It would be raised to 43-cents by 2018, assuming prices stay flat. The tax is part of a plan to raise $1.5 billion dollars more a year for roads. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
