    The gas tax holiday is more of spend it now pay for it later. The $30 will not even be in a lump sum, but it will be spread out over many fill-ups at 18 cents a gallon even for a 20 gallon gas tank that would be $3.60 at one time. Why go further into debt with our highway and bridges crumbling for less than $4.00 a clip?
