BOSTON (CBS) - Governor Deval Patrick unveiled his long term plan for funding transportation in the Commonwealth Monday and, if approved, it will impact every driver in Massachusetts.

Patrick's proposal aims to bridge a $1.02 billion budget gap each year for the next decade and "solve the funding crisis for our transportation system for a generation."
Without new revenue options, registration fees, vehicle inspection fees, the cost of getting a driver's licence, tolls on the Massachusetts Turnpike and MBTA fares will all go up under the governor's plan.
For example, what you pay to register you car will go up $53. Currently, a standard passenger vehicle registration is $50. That means it would now cost $103.
Elections have consequences.
