Naw, it will go the other route. Eliminating the gas tax, then cutting the subsidies to oil/gas companies. Then the oil/gas companies will pass that on to consumers. So the gas tax cut will not save anything and may cost consumers more.

In a free-market capitalistic system overseen by a democratic elected Republic, there is no reason to tax personal income or tax private personal property. In fact, it is counter productive to tax these two personal items.

If they drop the tax, what happens when it is reinstated. Gas jumps $.20 a gallon overnight, there would be riots!

Way to twist chit.

Since sarcasm appears to be lost on this crowd, let's go with the literal....
It seems like if you end the government, remove every single politician and think we have had decades of utter failures that you might not be happy with how the country is doing, but maybe not.

We’ll, we’re definitely not happy with the collection of Carl’s you love and support, Teddy. And no, you weren’t being sarcastic, it’s just an easy excuse for you to use.

I thought that Joe's infrastructure bill was going to fix all the roads and bridges etc? along w enhance the funding of the Green Projects and Covid Relief.
Where have our previous gas taxes gone too if not for Infrastructure-fixing the roads and bridges? Oh-i know-not for fixing them but I am sure they were diverted to something important such as Gender/Woke/CRT studies or along those lines.

just my uninformed opinion

If I remember correctly, that $1 trillion dollar boondoggle, had $40 billion allocated for roads and bridges. It is complete bs. When he was politicking for it to pass, every time he would mentioned “our crumbling roads and bridges” but never mentioned only a fraction would be allocated for such.

When has any tax or fee been eliminated without something else talking its place? The US government never reduces incoming money. Just like they never have layoffs.


Be safe,

It's the fundamental duty of all Americans to question the government. More so, since being in the government has gone from being something one did as a service to their country, to a career choice. When laws and funding are determined by politicians stock trades. (Well documented on both sides) The government can't be trusted to look out for the best interests of the people.

Yep. Undo the restrictions on drilling and the pipelines. In other words, erase all of the damage done by the feeble minded one since Jan. 2021.

Eliminating the fed gas tax will lower the cost of a full tank of gas for my small SUV by less than $3. Big Whoo! And depending on how long it lasts may not help at all, unless it's for an extended period of time and even then it will not be a major impact. This is a big smokescreen and only the fools who listen to the foolishness coming out of the administration will fall for it.

Get oil production back up in this country where we are again self-sufficient. And stop with the lies about how many leases the oil companies are not using. It's not the leases, it's the actual drilling permits (or lack of from Sleepy Joe's folks) on those leases that is the problem. Drill it ourselves and quit buying oil from countries that hate us but will take our money all day long.

Interesting article about profits in a gallon of gas:

Gas profits!
