Bruce De Benedictis: "I once pointed out that the MacArthur Freeway took out houses in Oakland that would be paying $80,000,000 per year in property taxes. In order for the gas tax to make up for that loss, there would need to be 4,000,000,000 miles per year traveled on it. That requires more than 10 times the number of cars that could fit on it bumper to bumper 24 hours a day, everyday."
