They want to tack ten cents a gallon onto residents' fuel costs - but only if the residents buy gasoline; diesel fuel would be exempt, as of course would be those darling electric vehicles. As usual, any revenue raised would only partially go to road maintenance:
The money raised would be split, with $35.8 million spent on road repair and $28.1 million on other projects, including new sidewalks, bike routes and pedestrian crossings along the most collision-prone streets.
I'm inclined to go for it; we don't do any business in Portland (and that includes buying gas), so I'm thinking that the idiots who've never seen a tax they didn't want to pass can go ahead and pay the piper. We certainly won't be. There's a perverse amusement in the concept.
