Will Higher Gas Taxes Save Mass Transit?
"The only way to rescue the Port Authority of Allegheny County and its Philadelphia counterpart from perpetual budget emergencies is a gasoline tax increase tied to mass transit, a key Democratic legislator said yesterday as his Republican colleague nodded in tacit approval.
The state tax now stands at 26 cents a gallon, among the highest in the nation. The amount of the tax increase hasn't been settled, but it's expected to be at least 5 cents."
