Memo to The Sun: Enough with the gas tax

I'm sick and tired of The Baltimore Sun editorial staff advocating a gas tax for transportation projects ("Unfinished business," May 16). A new gas tax would not be used for transportation funds. It would again be raided for the general fund.

The Baltimore Sun says the gas tax hasn't increased since 1992. What a coincidence since my salary is lower now than it was in 1992. I'm living within my budget. I expect the state of Maryland to start living within its budget and quit increasing it every year. This growth is unsustainable.
