Road Funding

Gas Tax
Road improvements are funded by a user fee, commonly called gas tax. It is truly a user fee as those who use the system pay according to their usage. As you fuel your vehicle, you are paying 19 cents/gallon towards maintaining every public road in Michigan. That include:
  • Dust control
  • Gravel road blading
  • Pothole patching
  • Reconstruction
  • Road signs
  • Shoulder maintenance
  • Snow removal
  • Traffic signals
Motorists in Michigan may consider themselves fortunate. There has been only 1 increase in those cents/gallon since 1984. They have saved money at the pump, but at what cost?
