Pro-gas-tax campaign slow to take shape

Friday's P-I reports the pro-gas-tax campaign is having trouble getting started.

Of course, the argument goes, Washington's infrastructure (old bridges, bottlenecks, etc.) need help. But the fact of the matter is the gas tax is DOA. If the proponents could have overcome the 400,000 signature groundswell of opposition, they have little control over the fact that gas is now over $3 per gallon, thanks to the combined effects of Katrina and W's wrongheaded foreign policy.
