We could all be looking at paying more at the pump if some state lawmakers have their way.

Louisiana legislators are looking into increasing a gasoline tax to help fund a backlog of road projects in the state.

According to state officials, Louisiana is facing a $13 billion backlog of road projects. Some legislators believe that a gasoline tax increase could be the remedy to funding this long list of necessary projects.

Governor John Bel Edward's administration believes the state would generate about $700 million a year with the tax to move these projects forward.

The catch? The tax would be an additional 23 cents per gallon.

Something tells us that this will be a hard sell to most constiuents, but then again, the money has to come from somewhere, right?
