I am against increasing pollution tax on gasoline for a few reasons. Oil is not disappearing, and when it becomes more expensive, market agents will substitute away from gasoline to save money(Jerry Taylor, object.cato.org, 2007). If we were to increase pollution tax on gasoline the gas would be less affordable for people, which would turn to other things to cause more pollution to the economy.
I believe increasing the pollution tax on gasoline would help out the economy in the long run. If the gas is more expensive then less people would buy gas and drive less miles and maybe result to walking, riding a bike or any none motor vehicles for transportation. This would decrease the carbon emission and air pollution. Our environment would be healthier if we increased the pollution tax on gasoline.
