The upcoming special session of the Indiana General Assembly will take up the issues of abortion and the governor's proposal to send $225 to all taxpayers from the state's growing budget surplus. Power Poll Indianapolis members were asked whether lawmakers also look at the gasoline tax, as some have suggested?

By a very narrow margin respondents said legislators should leave it the 62-cent-a-gallon tax alone: 48 percent vs. 46 percent.

About Power Poll: Power Poll asks questions of the most powerful, influential people in U.S. cities. It is not a scientific survey.

Power Poll is distinctly nonpartisan.
