Don Eddlemon: Gas taxes already near $1

As a retired gasman I would like to remind you about gas taxes: Federal excise tax, 18.4 cents per gallon. State excise tax, 39.5 cents per gallon. Sales tax at $4 a gallon, 36.6 cents per gallon. This is what we now pay in taxes per gallon: 94.5 cents.

Gov. Jerry Brown wants to add 16 cents per gallon for road repair. Where does it stop?
