SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — With gas prices continuing to reach new highs across the United States, a survey taken by hundreds of San Diegans shows they believe California's gas tax should be repealed and the new prices have impacted their households.

The ABC 10News/Survey USA poll interviewed 500 people from Tuesday, March 15 to Thursday, March 17. Surveyors consisted of US Census targets for gender, age, race, and homeownership.
