Letter: No thanks, pols, for hike on gas tax

To the editor:

This is just a quick thank you to our Democratic politicians for whom Massachusetts voted.

I want to thank you for raising our gas taxes yet again and also for tying them to inflation. That way, when inflation goes up, our gas taxes will go up, and the Democratic politicians can say, “I didn’t do it. Inflation did it!”

Citizens, go online and check if your state representative and senator voted for it — and then send them a thank-you note, too.
