GAVIN NUISANCE: California Gov RAISING Gas Tax, Already Highest Prices in the Nation

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.27.22

Just when you thought California gas prices couldn’t get any higher.

According to a report from Fox News, Gavin Newsom’s California is getting ready to raise gas prices by more than fifty-cents a gallon starting July 1st. Some parts of the Golden State are seeing average prices of $6 per gallon already.

Newsom had originally supported delaying the tax —but that’s not happening now.

“It is clear now that the Legislature will not act in time to provide that immediate, limited relief, but we look forward to working with lawmakers on the Governor’s proposal for direct payments to Californians wrestling with rising prices,” Newsom’s spokesperson Alex Stack said in a statement.

“California state Republicans introduced a bill in January that would immediately suspend the gas tax in response to the surging prices and backfill the projects from the state’s $45 billion surplus, but the proposal failed to secure enough votes in March,” Fox News reported.
