Highway Fund Insolvent By August

DOT Secretary LaHood: Highway Fund May Be Insolvent By Mid-August.

Why is the administration saying, flat out, that they will not increase the gas tax?  It makes the most sense to me; the people who use the roads will pay for it. Trucks wear them down more; they pay more based on their lower fuel economy.  People with light cars pay less.  It makes complete sense.

It would also make sense that health care costs associated with smoking be paid from the cigarette taxes, but that is a whole other topic for another day.
