It seems inevitable gasoline and diesel taxes will go up

There was a time when I thought I could count on Republicans who now control the House of Representatives, Senate and Whitehouse in Washington DC to reduce taxes — how naïve of me.

The latest going around is how "gasoline and diesel taxes haven’t been increase in years and how they need to go up to improve infrastructure." There is always some excuse to obfuscate how how many ways bureaucrats collect taxes, but in the end government grows bigger, the spending higher, the waste more, the debt being passed down to our children larger and overall bureaucratic efficiency lower.

BTW, why continue to tax diesel more than gasoline?
It is only passed on in higher prices?
