STREET BEAT: ‘What do you think of the state’s 12-cent gas tax increase?’

Compiled by Billie Jordan in the Mid-Wilshire District.

PATRICK DAVIS

“I think it should be higher if it means the roads can get fixed. There’s something slowing that process down so if it’s money, raise the taxes.”
MARCELLUS WILLIAMS
Miracle Mile
“I haven’t even thought of it – gas is already high and we deal with it. I would want the gas to be lower, but if they need the money to improve the streets, ok.”
SHEILA O.
West Hollywood
“It’s inconvenient. I have a car that runs well on gas, but 12 cents is a huge increase.”
