    I think he means that US financial markets are for some reason known to him as a "stable free trade area". Whatever that means.

    Your guess is as good as mine. For all I know he is referring to a farm stand at a horse stable.

    I think he means "stable" as in...relatively unchanging.

    But I'm not so sure about the "free trade area" part.

    Do we have free trade in the USofA?

Not that insufficient money was collected, no, the money that was collected was diverted from it's intended and promised purpose for other BS. Now, the government wants to take even more money for infrastructure. How much you wanna bet they divert that money too?

    So in essence, the statement you made is pretty much false. The fuel taxes collected don't go, at least not as much as they should, to road infrastructure. That's MY point. Did you miss it?
    You need to cite your contentions, otherwise, you may be just be appealing to ignorance:

    Revenue for the Highway Trust Fund is derived almost entirely from federal gas taxes and distributed to all 50 states.

    I am referring to the official weights and measures and the Standard fixed by our federal Congress. Why not get a clue and a Cause.

    Context can be everything; it may be why those on the right are always so wrong.
