Complete Article: New Yorkers are glad that Mayor Bloomberg's $8 congestion fee is dead, a Quinnipiac poll yesterday showed.
Fifty-six percent of suburban voters, 59 percent of city voters - who would have borne much of the brunt of the proposed $8-a-vehicle tax to enter lower Manhattan - and 47 percent of upstate voters opposed the plan.Just 32 percent of all voters, and only 36 percent of city and suburban voters, expressed regret that Bloomberg's plan had been killed last week.
