WANT GASOLINE TAX REASONABLE Peiroleum Committee Says 97 Millions Paid Iowa Since 1925. DBS MOINES--Stale gasoline taxes have cost the taxpayers ot Iowa an estimated total of $97,000,000 since the levy was imposed in this state in 1925, Gov, Clyde L. Herring was informed Monday by H. E. Wormhoiidt, chairman, and M. L. Long, secretary of the Iowa Petroleum Public Relations committee. The cost of the tax in 39.T alone was estimated at 512.700.000. Explaining that the petroleum industry, which their committee represents, has welcomed state gasoline taxes levied a.t reasonable rates to finance highway construction, improvement and maintenance, they urged the governor to bold the tax rale iu this state to reasonable levels, to expend the revenue only upon planned roads, and to enforce the gasoline tax laws to prevent tax evasion and gasoline bootlegging. They urged also that the governor' support immediate elimination of the depulicating federal levy. It was reported that Hie total national cost of gasoline taxation since the levy first was imposed by Oregon on Feb. 2fi, 1919, to finance highways Is estimated at ,?5,31S.- Bin,S56. of which $586,337,306 represents federal gasoline taxes collected since 1932. Tliey told I he governor that while the tax permits highway users to contribute their fair share to the cost of highways, in some stales tax rates have become so excessive as to encourage tax evasion and bootlegging.
