Smokey, We Have A Deficit

Graphic Friday

Through 2005-2009 every state received more Federal-Aid Highway dollars than it contributed through fuel taxes & other fees. Our grand experiment is not a user paid system and probably shouldn’t be. As well, the money that is collected tends to support highways over local streets–thus subsidizing suburbia/sprawl and focusing funding on large arterials.
