Raising the gas tax is bad idea for two reasons:

1. The poorest people get hit the hardest. Outside of very large cities, public transportation is the USA is a joke or nonexistent. Where I live there are no alternate means of travel.

2. Everything in the USA is shipped by truck. Higher gas taxes mean higher prices for nearly everything; it is very damaging to the economy. And the poor get hit here again.
