If you check out this story:
http://subsidyscope.org/transportation/direct-expenditures/highways/funding/analysis/

You can see the proportion of highway funding that comes from all user fees (gas tax, car registrations fees, etc) and what proportion comes from the general fund. The long and short of it is that in the 60s, 70% of highway funding came from user fees. In 2007, it was 51%. Additionally, there's less money coming from the federal government, so a lot of states are having to fork over more general funds.
