Fairness is raising the fuel tax at the pumps for all car, since there are now more cars available that use 100% fuel and get as good if not better gas mileage the my hybrid. Hybrids were and still are good for the environment and because I chose to pay a higher sticker price and do something for the environment, I got penalized when it came time to renew my tags. What message will we give to our younger future voters who will need to make strong decisions to keep our environment in check. Finally, if I leave my beautiful state that I love so much, this would not even be an issue.
