Some House Democrats introduced legislation that would nearly double the federal gas tax to 33.4 cents per gallon claiming that Congress needs to replenish the Highway Trust Fund (HTF). Politicians never explain to you where these funds go. According to Cato Institute's Chris Edwards, a full one-quarter of HTF spending is used on non-highway projects. Examples include nearly $900,000 to resurface a bike trail in Los Angeles and almost $6 million in funding for a boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

After wasting millions of taxpayer dollars on projects unrelated to highways, politicians are asking for even more of your hard-earned money. We can stop these politicians, but they need to hear you. Urge your family and friends to sign the petition. It’s time to #TankTheGasTax!
