I thought this was interesting and could explain why different people in different parts of the country view our govt different ways-
This is from Newsweek- here are states that get far more back in federal money than their citizens pay in:
Mississippi- $2.83 for every $1
Alaska - $2.24

Just looking over an interstate map and knowing that some of these states have low populations, I am not surprised. I am sure that there is more than just paying for roads, but after driving through some of these states the last couple of years, I'm not surprised since there seems to be a lot of road work going on the interstates. Montana is the 4th largest state in the US and doesn't even have one million people in the entire state.
