Originally, the taxes charged when you bought a gallon of gas were supposed to go to maintaining infrastructure, specifically roads, bridges and tunnels. However, typical of all things the governement touches, the funds have gone into the general fund rather than being reserved for what the American public was told they would be used for. If you want another example, you need look no further than when Lydon Johnson did away with the Social Security "Lock Box" and put all the income tax into the general fund in the 70's. After that, it became simple for the government to increase taxes for what ever hair brained scheme they came up with. The vehicle was already there. It just became a matter of how much they could push it until the public began to squak. Apparently, we have yet to reach that threshold.
