The bill, which was still being drafted late Tuesday evening, will seek to cap the 7.53 percent tax when the wholesale price of gas reaches $3 per gallon. As of March 19, the wholesale price was around $3.18, which means the gross receipts tax was around 22 cents.

The voters are so stupid!! These people are all first-class weasels who can’t see any further down the road than their next election. I used to wonder why, in countries who change leaders through the barrel of a gun, that they kill off the opposition when they assume power. Watching our “legislators” at work, I don’t wonder so much any more.
