Financing the state’s freeway needs could mean Arizona motorists will pay higher gasoline taxes, will see an entirely new sales tax on fuel on top of that and will find it’s even more expensive to register their vehicles.

And owners of all-electric cars likely would feel a hit, too.

It’s up to a Mesa legislator to get his colleagues on board for the proposal.

    The gas tax should be raised 1st. It hasn’t changed in 19 years and AZ doesn’t have a drop of OIL or a refinery in the entire state. Why give gas a break. Oh I guess some legislature members like the Brown cloud.
