Boston Globe Editorial: Gas tax to pay for transit

“Gas-tax timidity”
“The 21-cent gasoline excise tax has not been increased since 1991, and inflation has cut its value by a third. It remains the tax of choice for transportation improvements because it targets users of a product that the state would like to see conserved, to limit wear on the roads, improve the environment, and reduce dependence on foreign producers.”
