- Virginia Senate votes to raise the gas tax and tie it to inflation. In addition "The plan would impose a statewide 1 percent sales tax on wholesale fuel and allow the state to raise that sales tax by 1 percent if Congress fails to pass legislation allowing Virginia to collect sales taxes on Internet sales....the Senate bill would increase the vehicle registration fee by $15." Not only would the plan make driving more expensive, but it would also provide more money for transportation.
