  1. Tax cheap gas not food! An indexed fuel tax would greatly help solve N.M.’s revenue roller coaster. Tax gas when cheap, automatically un-tax it as the price rises. This is called an indexed fuel tax. Consumers do not notice five or ten cents phased in a penny at a time when gas is $ 1.90 a gallon

    We are missing an opportunity as our state revenues drop, and drivers reap a huge windfall

    Cheap gas has a cost in wasted fuel and in consumers purchasing gas hogging vehicles

    Does anyone remember global warming?
