Perhaps someone should remind the libs of what happened when gas was $4 a gallon... yes, the very same gas whose taxes pay for their money hog mass transit systems. What happened? People simply drove less, or bought more fuel efficient vehicles. The price of gas came down and with it, all the extra gas tax revenue.
Of course they are probably one step ahead of us in that they'll simply raise some other tax to pour into mass transit. But to be fair, I do think urban mass transit is a good thing. It is just run very poorly and inefficiently.
Only if you don't have a car or can't afford to park it in the big city parking lots. It sucks riding the bus. Been there, done that..
