It looks like our government is taking a big chunk of the gasoline profits. I do know that supposedly the tax is to help build and maintain the roads; but I also remember the lottery was to go towards schools (only 10% actually makes it there). Or how Social Security is supposed to go towards the retired 60+ tax payers. They've tapped into that budget as well. I wonder just how much of this tax goes to the transit, maintenance and construction of the roads?
