The Cape Cod Times ran a story on March 10 saying that gas prices in the state ranged from a low of $1.71 per gallon to a high of $2.09. Their source was wire reports. Perhaps they should gaze across the sea instead, or tell us that we really have seceded at last since down-Island prices are averaging $2.65.

And now, more good news on the proposed gas tax. A group that includes the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce doesn’t think 19 cents is enough; they’d like to make it 25 cents. Still another group thinks 29 cents sounds just right. At either 25 or 29 cents, Massachusetts will have the highest gas tax in the country. Welcome, tourists!

You’ll be tacking on another 19 cents per gallon soon if Governor Deval Patrick has his way. But that’s okay because that tax will preclude the need to raise tolls on roads you don’t use. Wait, what? The Massachusetts Turnpike Authority just approved a set of toll hikes before the vote on the gas tax increase. Is this part of the stimulus package?
