SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -- Michigan's Governor Rick Snyder has a plan to fix the state's roads and it involves a tax on gas to help foot the bill.  But are you willing to do your part?  The answer depends on who you ask.

Fox 2's Charlie Langton hit the streets of southeast Michigan to find out what residents had to say about a tax on gas and a higher cost for vehicle registration to help cover road repair in the state.

The residents he spoke to had much to say and spelled their opinions out to Langton on why they would or would not want to help cover the cost.

Click the video player to hear what they had to say when Langton sits down with Fox 2's Huel Perkins on "Let It Rip."
