TXDOT is lying about being broke so that the voters will capitulate and approve the Spanish toll road supported by their clueless politicians in Austin.
With $115/bbl. oil dollars flooding into state coffers, we ought to be asking where all that loot is going, if not into our roads. And by the way, why is gas $3.30 in Texas, but $3.05 in New Jersey?
Drivers in the US are stuck on stupid in this “energy crisis” in which there is a surplus of gas and demand is dwindling.
because gas taxes in Texas are higher?
Damn rights people are being duped and ripped off in this fake energy crisis. The only crisis there is, is record profit making by oil companies and tycoons controlling traders driving up the barrel price of oil for any reason and rumor such as the nieghbor spilling some gas filling up his lawnmower, government tax gouging- the higher the price the more tax they get, and the Arabs keeping supplies tight by restricting oil output.
Independent Audit of TXDOT NOW!
