The great mistake made when the gas taxes were last raised was not indexing them to an index tracking fuel costs. The federal gas tax has actually gone down when you account for inflation and no politician wants to vote for raising taxes, especially fuel taxes. So yeah, I'm all for raising gas taxes, make the final gas costs equivalent to Canada's and I'm all for it.
