YOU PAY $1S2 TAX ON 1O GALLONS OF GASOLINE Gasoline taxes will be lowered — if the latest temporary Federal gasoline tax increase expires on June 30th as scheduled by the 1959 Federal Highway Act. Along with all good citizens, we are in favor of building the roads that the motoring public needs, But, in the last 10 years alone, Federal and State taxes nationwide on gasoline have skyrocketed 51%— skyrocketed to a point where gasoline, a basic commodity, is actually taxed at a rate five times as high as luxuries like diamonds and mink coats, Must gasoline taxes be so high? Most people believe that gasoline taxes are high because the money is needed to pay for our national highway program. This is not so. The fact is that out of every highway-user tax dollar collected last year by the Federal government, more than 40 cents was diverted to non-highway purposes, if these highway*user tax revenues were spent for high* ways—as they should be^-gasoline taxes could be lowered, and the highway program given a boost, In fact, the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1959 provides that when the added temporary Federal gasoline tax expires on June 30th, 1961, as scheduled, some $802 million a year in highway-user taxes-now diverted to the U, S. Treasury's general fund-will instead be deposited in the Highway Trust Fund. As a result, if the latest Federal temporary gasoline tax increase expires on June 30th as scheduled-the national highway program will actually get $225 million more each year "than it how receives from the latest Federal temporary gasoline tax increase. In January of this year, after an exhaustive 2-year survey of national transportation policy, a special U, S. Senate study group confirmed the wisdom of this decision. This will be good news for you. You will be able to enjoy a steadily improving highway system, at a lower gasoline tax-rate.
