Good highways are a must

August 4, 2013
Parkersburg News and Sentinel

Whether we like it or not, members of the West Virginia Oil Marketers & Grocers Association (OMEGA) collect the taxes on each gallon of fuel West Virginians put in their vehicle or business machinery. From July 1, 2012, through June 30, 2013, West Virginia retailers collected state motor fuel taxes of $409 million and federal taxes of $400 million. Our convenience stores, gas stations and petroleum marketers gather and submit the federal and state tax and these funds are used to maintain and improve our state highway system.
