A survey of Wyoming members of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) finds 81 percent opposed to a proposal in the state legislature to increase the state gas tax by ten cents a gallon.

NFIB spokesman Tony Gagliardi says NFIB members are concerned about the increased costs of transportation and shipping that would be caused by the tax. He adds the  recession ”really isn’t over, and you don’t raise taxes when you’re trying to come out of a recession”.

Supporters of the proposal say the money is needed to improve the condition of roads and highways across Wyoming, which they say has deteriorated in recent years. The NFIB survey found 18 percent of members supporting the increase, according to Gagliardi.
