There is also a divide among voters on how federal gas taxes that are collected should be spent. 45 percent of voters agree with the current system, where gas taxes are used to maintain the Interstate Highway System as well as to fund mass transit systems like subways, trains and buses. 38 percent disagree and believe the taxes should only be used for the Interstate Highway System. Without an increase to the federal gas tax, though, major cuts will need to be made to keep the Highway Trust Fund solvent. House Republicans are already proposing such cuts.
Rasmussen Reports surveyed 1,000 likely voters on July 8 and 9.
