Well, not only does he favor an increase in the cost of your gasoline, he's out there touting it:
Kaine considers fuel-tax increase?This deaf-ear approach to the budget impasse - the people of Virginia are already unnerved by the spike at the pump and Kaine is more than willing to worsen the problem even though his government is sitting on a massive surplus - should be fodder for the Republicans who are standing up heroically against another massive tax increase.

Despite rocketing gasoline prices, Gov. Timothy M. Kaine yesterday said he would consider backing higher fuel taxes as part of a remedy for roads and mass transit.
"I will not pledge to veto a gas-tax compromise," said Kaine.
Kaine signaled a willingness to consider an increase in the 17.5-cent-per-gallon tax on gasoline -- the lowest in the region as House Republicans demanded that the state Senate retreat on a proposed increase. (link)
