Poll Says Respondents Would Rather Pay More For Gas Taxes

Results from a poll done by the Coeur d'Alene Press say that people would rather pay higher gas taxes than income taxes or lose some Social Security benefits. I wonder if that's because gas is something you can control how much you spend on. If money is really tight one month, maybe you take the bus for a while instead of driving, or cut out those trips to the store for two items.

Here are the results of the poll. Of the three options, which would you prefer? Higher gas taxes, less Social Security benefits or higher income taxes?
