Fuel is way too cheap in this country.  So are cars, especially large ones.

lol, that's some pretty wrong-headed thinking.  I understand what you're getting at though.

If you look at the state of transportation infrastructure and the lack of a budget to fix mist of it,  maybe gas taxes should be higher

Neither agreeing or disagreeing, but you could say that about literally anything.  I doubt you'd sell the half of the country that doesn't live in a major metro area on raising gas taxes to fund mass transit.

probably not, it would be state by state. I don't think it would ever happen in Virginia since rural roads here are ridiculously well maintained (the Danville expressway serving basically no one may be one of the nicer highways in the state) If you held rural virginia to the same standard of if you want new roads, they're going to be toll roads that NOVA seems to be held to now, maybe they would change their minds.

Or maybe we can stop pumping 2/3s of our budget in to DHS and DoD. Seriously, they alone take up almost a trillion.

Local areas could push a sales tax on gas for uses such as mass transit.  So gas purchases would be higher in those local areas

Uh...ok.  I thought you closet Ayn Rand types preferred market signals to regulation.  Pinkos like me would like to just have a ban on private passenger vehicles with GVW >1500 kg and >X% outside target mean fuel efficiency  :D

fuel efficiency measured as M/G or G/M?

Maybe Linty but I love Mass Transit.  I hate the New York MTA, though.
