Article Photos: Senators propose 12-cent gas tax increase 1/2

FILE - This Sept. 4, 2013 file photo shows Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn. speaking with reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington. Two senators proposed Wednesday to raise federal gasoline and diesel taxes for the first time in more than two decades as Congress struggles with how to pay for highway and transit programs. Murphy, a Connecticut Democrat, and Sen. Bob Corker, a Tennessee Republican, pitched their plan as a bipartisan solution to replenish the federal Highway Trust Fund. That fund is forecast to go broke in late August.   (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
