Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett's transportation funding plan will rely heavily on a tax on gasoline -- the one paid by suppliers, not by drivers -- and would have an uncertain impact on pump prices.

Mr. Corbett will propose removing a cap on the Oil Company Franchise Tax, which is levied against the first sale of gasoline as it enters the state, typically between refiners and distributors, according to a state official familiar with the plan.

Nothing uncertain about, the increase will be passed onto the consumer.

Like we don't pass along the Fed tax, State tax, County tax, local tax and freight? It is all FREE don't you know? Really?? Just like Obamma Care, it is free, won't cost you a thing. Seriously??
Nothing is so expensive as when it is free.

Good! Gasoline tax needs to be much much higher to punish the idiots tooling around in SUVs and pickups.

Uncertain impact at the pump? Of course an increase in the cost of doing business will be passed along to the consumer.

Uncertain impact, unless you have some common sense. Let's ask them to pay $.28/gal and say we aren't sure if that will increase the cost to drivers, sure. Ha!

Not hard to figure out that the wholesales will add it to their prices and pass the cost onto the consumers.

Tax the back end and the price of things will increase on the front end. This is a perspective move. People will see the increase and blame the gas station because they never see the back end tax increase. Heck I've seen videos of people blaming the poor clerk behind the counter for the price increases.

... they want to tax the crude oil that's used to refine the gas, and tax the distribution hubs, and tax the delivery truck drivers, and tax the gas station owners who purchase it, and then tax us at the pump.

Corporations always pass on cost to the consumer, so we pay the tax anyway.
