I have yet to see any traffic in the city from the gas industry. The streets in 'Billtown' have been neglected for a long time.

I can't believe that everything is blamed on the gas industry. Some people have a one track mind.

...but our guess is that a majority of the regular travelers of streets in most of the county municipalities believe they are in worse shape than a few years ago-SG

You mean before the gas industry???

Pinecr, I agree, but was that not what the impact tax was supposed to be for? I agree with a severance tax however, like most other states in our position do.-Scott

If the gas industry was held responsible for the roads they are chewing up, then a lot of problems would be solved...but no,the gas industry said they would maintain the roads they use, however, we have seen first hand that that is not happening. Put a severance tax on the gas industry and make them pave the roads they are ruining or have them leave.
