The true "bandits" are states that impose outrageous taxes on each gallon of fuel. The oil companies would drool to make the amount per gallon many states add in taxes. It is understandable that maintenance on highways has to be funded. Where does funding begin and outright thievery begin? I know for a fact the state where I currently reside makes over 10 times more than the company that searches for oil, drills, refines, transports and delivers gasoline makes for a profit. I ask again, who is the bandit?
