As part of the endeavor to increase public awareness on the state’s massive unfunded maintenance needs, a new effort known as #91in91 has been launched. The new campaign combines two key facts: 1) Arizona’s fuel tax is 18 cents per gallon – one of the lowest in the country and has not been increased since 1991; 2) there are 91 people (Governor and 90 legislators) who can do something about it.
The #91in91 effort throws it back to 1991 when the hair and cell phones were bigger, and Arizona’s population and road capacities were smaller. It challenges Arizonans to think about how much has changed in the past 29 years. The pictures are being shared on social media and a throwback yearbook can be found at 91in91.com. Keep scrolling to see how HighGround has changed since 1991.
