Mayor Kirk Caldwell: Gasoline Tax Increase

Posted: Updated:

(Hawaii News Now) - Any driver on Oahu can tell you, our roads are filled with potholes and bumps. Mayor Kirk Caldwell is proposing that we fix them.  But in these cash strapped times, how do we pay for this multi-million dollar repair?  The mayor believes we should raise gas taxes...5 cents a gallon.   We are already paying the third highest taxes on gas in the nation just behind New York and California. But, can we afford it?  Mayor Caldwell is here this morning to tell us that we can.
