It was a bad night for gas tax hikes on the ballot this Tuesday in the 2018 midterm elections. 

While Missouri voters overwhelmingly rejected Proposition D, a ballot measure that would resulted in a 58% state gas tax hike, Utah voters sent a clear message to state lawmakers they don’t want them to even think about raising the state gas tax. 

Non-binding Question 1 asked Utah voters if they wanted to advise the legislature to raise the state gas tax. Utah voters rejected the question with more than 65% voting NO
