Gasoline prices in Germany

A German friend recently told me that gas costs
about $7 a gallon there of which 85% is taxes.

Let's do the math.

That means the bummint gets $5.95 of that.

Now we know where the oil profits go, and don't
forget bummints collect additional taxes on those
profits. Can anyone sort out where the bummint
"profits" go?

You say to the roads and bridges...but where else?

Wouldn't it be a better idea if the ones who
benefit from the use of gasoline, the oil
companies, built the roads?

Betcha it'd be a whole lot cheaper and nothing
more than abolishing the tax would have to be
done. The oil companies would do the rest.

Too simple, ain't it.

Think about it.
