Dont come west Jerry.  Our gas tax is 75 cents a gallon and they want to add more.  We are pay 3.59 a gallon.

Jerry, I have in-laws still living in southern Illinois. We went on a trip and stopped off to visit them on the way home (KC). Crossing a Paducah, the gas went up from $2.399/gal to $2.999/gal.

My in-laws and their families are farmers. They buy gas in bulk. It still costs them $2.839/gal.

My wife and I, both born in Illinois and Southern Illinois University/Carbondale grads. left in 1969 and have never lived in Illinois since.

However, thinking seriously about moving out of Illinois - gas tax cuts down on driving (38 cents /gallon)   Illinois used to be a nice state, but it seems to be circling the drain.
