Should NJ Raise the Gas Tax? [POLL]

As NJ politicians look to raise money to help fix NJ roads from a proposal of a 4-cent-per-gallon gas tax hike, NJ residents are wondering how much more tax they can take.

Raymond Lesniak made the proposal of raising the gas tax an expected $240 million in revenue for the state, according to NJ.com.

With the transportation fund being all but dried up and NJ’s roads in need of die repair, there needs to be a way to get the roads back in shape. Governor Christie in the past has said that he is not in favor of any new taxes, including a gas tax for the state. Governor Christie may be NJ taxpayer’s only hope to stop the tax from happening by vetoing it if/when it comes across his desk.

As Jim noted on the show, most politicians can only see the future as far as the next election and never think of how raising a tax would affect the state long term.

Is NJ taxed out or is this gas tax a necessary evil to make the roads we drive everyday better?
