Isn’t the problem that the gas tax has not kept up with inflation? Like the sales tax, the gas tax is a regressive tax — but it can be worse than the sales tax. After all, in general, people who are less affluent find themselves with vehicles that have worse mileage, and therefore are likely to be purchasing more gasoline and therefore contributing disproportionately more to repair roads

And, as was the issue that sparked the Yellow Jackets in France, people in rural areas have farther distances to drive and less access to public transportation as an option.
