um, taxing petrol to maintain roads is a very effective user pays system. perhaps you should be looking to blame the oil companies for continually hiking the price of gas while making enormous profits.

^Umm here in the states, specifically where I live in Southern California there are so many vehicles on the roads that the states or government can't keep up with repairs or improvements. Yet gas prices and taxes continue to rise. It doesn't make sense. But then what does anymore?

i'm familiar with traffic, just because i don't live in the states doesn't mean roads aren't busy.

part of the problem with them not being able to keep up is they aren't taxing enough on petrol to adequately fund any repairs.

would you prefer toll roads or roads in an even worse condition?

Yeah, I did the conversion.

Ours has gone up again too, it's probably over $3.50 USD/gallon right now.

But at least you pretty much have no oil whereas Canada has the second largest oil reserves in the world, and yet we are always paying considerably more than the Americans.

Holy moly, why is our gas so expensive in San Diego? I was almost at 1/2 tank yesterday and did a screeching U-turn when I passed an ARCO advertising regular unleaded at $2.91/gal. Makes me sick seeing it up over $3 most other stations.
