Maryland Gas Prices May Rise Under New Transportation Plan

ANNAPOLIS, Md. —Gas prices would go up under a new state transportation funding plan.

While many Marylanders may not want a price bump at the gas pump, a major business group is supporting the measure.

A public hearing before the House Ways and Means Committee started the engine of legislative debate on the governor's plan to raise the wholesale gas tax. It would cause a 2-cent hike at the pump this July and as much as 16 cents more in 2015. That money from drivers will help replenish the state's transportation trust fund by 2018 to pay for road and bridge projects and an expansion of mass transit.

How many "funds" or "investments" can we take...great we will establish another fund to Improve our roads and bridges....but didn't we already have that fund? .....didn't O'Mally steal that money and use it to prop up the general funds?....when O'Mally leaves .....the state will be in the same condition that he left Baltimore in! But they love him....that's where all our money goes.....
