An election is around the corner, and so is an increase to the gas tax.

Commuting in New Jersey is hard enough without the added expense of a gas tax, and politicians have already proven that they aren't going to allocate this extra money appropriately.

I say it's time to look for other ways to solve the state's debt problems.

Think it's time for politicians to get more creative with their solutions, or are you fine with a gas tax? Share your thoughts below or on Twitter with @nj1015 and @BillSpadea.
