I know they tried to raise the gas tax in the Hampton Roads Area years back to fund projects including the parallel Midtown Tunnel but it got turned down.  Either the citizens try another vote to raise the gas tax or it has to be tolled and I know they won't raise taxes especially in these economic times.

deathtopumpkins:
No, that passed. I remember the controversial legislation getting passed a few years ago, though I don't remember what all was increased. I think it was just ticket fines, car taxes, etc. No increased gas tax though.

froggie: Yeah I guess as the crow flies it is closer...
