Remember gas tax in 2014

Looks like our "tax and spend" Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley had his way again ("Md. Senate approves increase in gas tax," March 30).

The Maryland Senate passed Governor O'Malley's massive 80 percent gasoline tax hike over Easter weekend. Now, Maryland families and businesses will be burdened with the 5th highest gas tax rate in the nation.

Adding more pain at the pump and increasing costs of food and daily household items will evaporate more money out your family's budget! The gas tax hike was avoidable and it's not fair that another one of your taxes went up.

This new foolish and unnecessary tax burden imposed in Maryland must be remembered by the voters of this state in the next election.
