Slumping gas prices are obviously making car owners pretty happy, as it helps them save a lot of money at the pump, but they could also have a negative impact on consumers' pocketbooks, since they are already starting to hurt some states that rely heavily on gas and oil revenue, as well as the federal government, putting their budgets at risks, which could well result in increased taxes.
