630 words - 3 pages

Doesn't it seem like yesterday, when gas cost .99¢ a gallon and a full tank amounted to about only $20 dollars? Well apparently yesterday has been greatly missed being that now all $20 dollars can do is move the gas needle a notch and keep you from running out of gas. Over the past couple of years, gas has increased with prices hitting $1.50 to $2.00 a gallon, but in the past few months the prices have sky rocketed to an all time high of $3.00 gallon, which has become a popular topic in societies concerns.

The question that arises from this concern is if gas taxes are raised,...
