To the Editor:
Regrading raising the Will County gas tax, can we just raise the tax on diesel fuel? The trucks in our area cause the main damage to our roads.
Obviously the truck traffic is and will be increasing in the future. Tax them. They purchase approximately 50 gallons minimum of diesel fuel per day depending on whether they are local or over-the-road haulers.
How many gallons of gas do you purchase for your car daily? I'm a local driver, so I purchase 50 to 80 gallons of diesel fuel per day. I'm sorry that I'm part of the problem. But, I need to pay bills just like you.
