Yikes, no. You are smarter than this. This is a HIGHER tax on car free people. Gas tax is a user fee. The people who get screwed by a sales tax/real estate tax are those who live in urban and inner suburbs (ie car free people).

For the 3.5% whole sale tax to reach what the at the pump 17.5 cent rate was, gas would have to climb to about 5.50 at the pump.

This was a huge shell game. The only people that get a true tax break are those who don't buy much, dont own an expensive house (rural), and who use gas more recklessly than others.
