  1. All the other money from the gas tax are supposed to be used for the roads BUT are they??? NO, so whats the difference here, we all no its going to be used for everything other then the roads.

  2. Is that 23 cents per gallon or a 23 cent total charge for every fill? I would think a sensible approach is a tax increase per gallon but you are only charged taxes on the two dollars worth. So if say its 5% taxes. On $2 a gallon it would be $2.1 but if it were $4 a gallon consumers wont get hit twice. They would still only pay 10 cents taxes not 5% of $4 which is 20 cents.
    And yes tax money is by enlarge used for roads. The government is broke and needs money. Its fisaclly irresponsible not to raise taxes.

  3. Tolls should be put on those, especially trucks, just using NJ as a thoroughfare.

    We have poor or no mass transit in NJ, and a car and gas is a staple, not a luxury to be taxed.

  4. Mr. Governor,

    Historically, Democrats are inclined to raise taxes no matter the cause. Republicans, such as yourself, are inclined to reject tax hikes. Revenue may provided via stimulation of the economy – not by stifling it.

    We were counting on you to veto this choking tax rate on gasoline. The small petty cuts of other taxes may please your talking points. Reality however, is that this hike will effect all of us, in a very significant way.

    Shamefully, as the state with the highest real estate taxes, you now have taken away the perhaps only redeeming advantage of this once great state. Additionally, it is well known that border-to-NJ drivers come to NJ to fill-up – and spend a few dollars once they get here. That’s over now.

    It now seems that your legacy will indeed last – as the governor that took away NJ inexpensive gas. It’s time for any economic minded resident of NJ to consider leaving this state.

    Thank you.

  5. If the gax tax goes forth all are recommended to make sure all our representatives in pffice at this time must be voted out of office. The state just like everyone else must work within a budget
