North Carolina Gas Tax Will Increase 15% in 2006

This is no joke! North Carolinians need to rise up and speak out against higher fuel prices. Sign the petition, Pass this on to your friends, family and other boards. We already pay too much. January is coming fast. Its time we put the brakes on this unfair tax. Here is a few facts from

http://www.stopthegastaxhike.com/

FACT
North Carolina politicians -- like the Arab Oil Cartel - are windfall winners from higher gas prices. N.C. divides the gas tax into two parts -- a flat 17.5 cents /gallon + 7% of the wholesale price. When gas prices rise, North Carolina politicians automatically have more money to spend. The wholesale price is up -- so drivers will pay a 15% tax increase beginning in January.


Visit http://www.stopthegastaxhike.com/ and read the rest of the dirty details. Sign the petition and pass this on!

Drop the tax, make it up from the people that can actually afford it.

27.1 cents a gallon eh, quit your whining. We pay .40 yes THATS 40 CENTS PER GALLON up here in the dakota's and Mn area. I agree it's apalling no matter how much it is(it is just MORE BS TAXation to kill the little guys) but if I were you I'd be glad your there and not here. Your petition won't get you anywhere, getting all the people in your state to call there senators and informing them what you all think, just MIGHT. They don't like angry phone calls and e-mails, letters and what not from constituents who are telling them they are fired if this crap continues. Also clean your guns, u never know, you may be needing them soon the way our country is going.

I don't have a problem with it being based on percentage as a way to match inflation. Your state has to get money from somewhere, and you guys don't want to unfairly take it from people making 10 million a year, so pay up.

I think it's neat how tax breaks for the rich got them to spend more and thus allow the state to collect more taxes lol.
