The article presents several opinions of Americans on the question whether they are in favor of the U.S. government suspension or repealing of the 18.4 centavos per gallon federal tax on motor fuels. One citizen has expressed that the gas tax should not be repealed but instead use it to fund research and development of alternatives to fossil fuel. Another citizen has also asserted that the money must be placed into a social security fund and not in the general accounting fund.
