It would help me a whole lot to support changes in the tax code if I knew how this money is used and is proposed to be used. What percent of this tax is going to roads? Did I see electric car recharging stations being built using some of the gas tax dollars? What about Charlotte's "McCrory" Line? High speed rail? I see study, after study cautioning against these projects but NO clear reports back from the cities or states revealing actual costs vs income after they are built.
It's no wonder there's little support for tackling transportaion taxes. Nobody knows what it's for?
