Read the Lundberg Letter for Yourself Here!

Opponents to the new state gas tax are pointing to the latest survey from Lundberg Survey, a group that regularly tracks the cost of gasoline across the nation. 

Motorists will fork over more than $75-billion in gasoline taxes this year, an all-time record high, as governments continue to claim shortages of road funding. Weighted national average tax: 54¢ gal., a burden borne by both motorists and the gasoline market. This study identifies recent and upcoming state tax hikes and compares taxes in markets across the country -- including Los Angeles where the combined federal, state, and local tax total is now nearly 90¢ gal.

Supporters of the tax say the more than $5.2 billion in annual revenue is needed to help repair roads and the state's system of bridges as well as improving mass transit.
