Latest poll numbers indicate no support for hike in gas tax

As Oklahomans hit the road this summer, they are not in the mood for an increase in the gas tax to pay for road and bridge repair.

A new Oklahoma Poll by The News On 6 and the Tulsa World shows voters lining up overwhelmingly against the proposed tax. Almost 90% of the voters we polled say they plan to vote on September 13th when the gas tax is on the ballot, but only 25% say they are in favor of the tax. 64% say they will vote against it.

If passed, the tax on gasoline would increase no more than five cents a gallon to fund repairs to the state's deteriorating roads and bridges.

The Oklahoma Poll is a partnership of The News On 6 and the Tulsa World. 750 voters were surveyed during the last week of June. The margin of error is 3.5 percent.
