Now that I’m paying 20 cents a gallon more for the diesel for my vehicle, I would like to know exactly where my 20 cents is going. How much is going to patch the roads? How much is going to rebuild roads? How much is going to high-speed rail? How much is going to rapid transit? Is any going to local government to use at their discretion? Is there anywhere else this money is being used for?
