Why do we need an increase in the gas tax? I thought we passed that amendment to take auto sales tax was going to fund "transportation"? Could if be that the amendment was in fact a swindle to take my tax $$ and funnel them to some mass transit boondoggle in metro land?

Duh.



There'll be 5M people living in the metro and no one in "Greater Minnesota".


Except of course for all the welfare bums coming to Duluth.

What gets me is that gas stations are not allowed to go down on prices below 8 cents of what they pay for gas, but there is no ceiling on that same gas they can charge. If they can't go below 8 cents for gas then they shouldn't be allowed to go above that same figure...The smaller stations were kind of robbed on that law and SA and Holiday benefit the most...
