AvGas Taxes Quadruple
For those of you who don't get the Anchorage Daily News, I thought it would be worthwhile to post a link to this story that describes the proposal to increase the avgas taxes from 19.4 cents/gallon to 70.1 cents/gallon. Particularly for those of you in the bush for who aviation is far more than a hobby, this might be a good time to write our senators and representative.
Yep, I guess the poor little major airlines are thinking they're paying more than their share. I wonder if they've considered what they're going to do a few years down the road when they can't find any pilots since nobody's going to be able to learn to fly, let alone get any experience.
Yep, we've got to fight it. Write to your rep. (especially those outside who might read this, as I'm sure we're preaching to the choir with our's) Also join and support EAA or AOPA.
If you're looking for an airplane, recommend getting one stc'd for auto fuel....Louis
