They will, once they increase the federal tax 10 cents a gallon. Sounds like Iowa is jumping on the bandwagon too, they haven't said how much it is going to go up however. My bro-in-law is in the oil industry, and he said reguardless of this, the prices won't top 2 dollars a gallon until summer.
“There have been a lotta tough guys. There have been pretenders. And there have been contenders. But there is only one king.”
Shouldn't less demand mean less driving (in general), and thus mean less wear and tear on roadways, decreasing the funds needed for construction and repairs?
Logic would tell us this, but with gubment, logic need not apply.
I didn't read the article, but if I had to guess I don't think it's a linear relationship
I'm guessing weather is a big factor in road maintenance as well... not to mention there is a lot of maintenance already being put off due to lack of funds, so maybe the lower revenue is making that even more critical
Just a guess though
Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State, and may her colors ever fly!!! In Accordance with Prophecy
