According to the Massachusetts Gov., Deval Patrick, there will be no gas tax hike. The Governor dismissed the idea of raising the gas tax at a breakfast forum today for the 2010 gubernatorial candidates.

At the breakfast, the governor outlined his agenda hoping for a second term in office. He also went on to explain his policy decisions over the past four years. According to the article:

The governor vowed to continue to examine the state’s transportation system, but dismissed any notion of hiking the gas tax, saying the state cannot afford it at this time. The governor had supported a gas tax in the past because, under state law, any revenues from the tax would have to be redirected to transportation projects.

This is a welcome relief for Massachusetts drivers.
