Letters: A hike to the gas tax is necessary

Contributed To The Press • Jan 15, 2016 at 12:00 AM

An increase to the state’s gas tax is appropriate. This taxes the people using our roads.

With more efficient cars, the current tax is not sufficient to provide and repair the roads we need. The dollar is probably worth 70 percent of what it was at the time the current gas tax rate was set.

The tag tax on electric and hybrid cars is also appropriate so that they pay their fair share.
