There is a backlog of $132 billion in needed road repairs, $59 billion for state highways; and $73 billion for local streets and roads. Bad roads cost California drivers an additional $762 per year in vehicle maintenance costs from driving on crumbling roads.
California drivers are now paying about 74 cents for gas and over $1 per gallon for diesel when all federal and state taxes are included — the Cap Trade Greenhouse taxes is about 12 cents for gas and 15 cents for diesel. And the Low Carbon Fuel taxes add about 5 cents for gas and diesel.
Don’t complain. It’s the government you asked for when you went to the polls last November.
