Does a tax this high—on a basic commodity like gasoline —really make sense? Gasoline taxes across the nation amount to a 50% sales tax—and that's five times as high as the tax rate on luxuries like diamonds and mink coats. How did gasoline taxes get to high? Well, since World War U, there have been thret increases in the federal gaso* line tax a/owe. This brought the Federal tax to 4 cents a gallon, in addition to the Statg tax of 6 cents a gallon. ' . ; looking at it another way, in the last ten years gasoline taxes have skyrocketed 5/%-yet the price of gaso. line itself has risen only 5.5% during the same period. $94 a yeqr for gasoline taxe*l Gallon by gallon, these taxes add up to a lot of money. Each year the average motor vehicle owner in this state pays $84 for gasoline taxes alone. That's just a few dollars less titt* thf average week's pay for most people I Your gasoline dealer—who must collect thes.e taxes from* you—feels that gasoline taxes are much too high. More- and more, thinking people are coming to agree. What do you think? Gasoline taxes up 51% .In tan years HIGHWAYS AND GASOLINE TAXES Your gasoline retailer, naturally, favors construction of the roads that the motoring public needs. He believes in fair and reasonable taxation for this purpose but-, feels that taxes on gasoline have now reached unreasonably high levels. He also believes that all special taxes on the motorist should be used only for highway pur- ' poses. Yet last year, out of every automobile tax dollar collected by the Federal Government from highway users, more than 40 cents went for non-highway pur-, poses. If these automotive tax revenues were dedicated for highway purposes, there would be no need for the latest increase in the federal gasoline tax, Prtiented in lh« public interest by the Gaiolin* IPX Education Committee 575 Uyinglan Avenue York, New York Better living starts with Thermogas EASY TERMS AS LOW AS $6.60 PER MONTH Your Caloric Range can be built-in or free standing Caloric ranges are built with you In mind—engineered for easy cleaning.
