President Biden Calls for a Three-Month suspension of the federal gasoline tax

Federal Gas Tax Holiday Right now, the federal government charges an 18 cent tax per gallon of gasoline and a 24 cent tax per gallon of diesel.

That's gonna save me about $25 per month.

Now, when Trump was president and gas was selling around $2 bucks per gallon, that would work out to $417 dollar savings. And, the savings were real and kept on going!

OK, a tax break is better than a sharp stick in the eye, but the Biden has already jabbed us with the sharp stick when he decided to shut down energy.

It’s like putting a band-aid on a broken arm for many people who are just barely surviving.
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
@Onestarlitnight It’s a pittance compared to the increase in gas prices.
It's actually kind of insulting.. it's literally crumbs to the starving.. this administration is a bad joke
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
@Onestarlitnight Exactly that, it is insulting to us. Every time they pass a stimulus they fill their deep pockets with the bulk of the money. Always finds a way of circling back to them. They get the meat and we get the bones.

It's just an election gimmick. His stupid staff, who came up with this idea, (because Joe is too stupid to HAVE ideas), think the American public are as stupid as THEY are.
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
@4meAndyou every solution the Dems have for problems is idiotic at best.

@Nimbus 😆would joe be as cock sure nimby if he had too run manchester united for for years it was easy

fuel tax is the primary source of funding for road infrastructure/maintenance; many of which are already in poor condition...

so, again, democrats pull funding from other sources in an attempt to save face; so they can complain about it later and drive the national debt up even further...

give it a few months, they'll try to ram another costly infrastructure bill through congress that'll cost us more in taxes in the long run...
FreeSpirit1 · 51-55, F
He's not 100 percent at fault for the prices but his policies are a huge factor for them, he promised to disrupt the fossil fuel industry when he was campaigning for President, people seem to have forgotten.
Google it and see his promises.
He is in over his head and now trying gimmicks to fix things.
@FreeSpirit1 you're right about that campaign promise. People have short memories.

Screw the tax suspension, just open up production and get the d@mn prices down to where they should be!
kodiac · 22-25, M
I guess that's better than using the oil we have here .NOT!
How nice - the gas tax improves / maintains our roads. So now instead of paying 6.40 a gallon I will pay 18 cents lower and drive on fücked up roads.
Way to go Joe - now even more people that normally repair roads will be out of work. Do your genius ideas ever take a vacation ?

Lets Go Brandon !
Given the meteoric upward trajectory of gas prices, not sure how long the "savings" will last. I'm concerned that Biden has been depleting the strategic reserve.

Me too - key words STRATEGIC reserve. It's supposed to be for military use in the event of war.
@Budwick Yep. I can see the left bleeding it dry...and then the "unplanned" catastrophic event occurs.
Heartlander · 80-89, M
He suggested states do likewise.

Uhhhhh .... pssst, states don't print their own money and most have balanced budget and no deficit spending laws.
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
@Heartlander yeah like California is gonna knock off their gas taxes for 3 months.
robb65 · 56-60, M
I'm just wondering if they will try to make up the lost taxes at a later date.....
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
@robb65 will just print up more money out of thin air which means even more inflation on top of what we are experiencing now.
robb65 · 56-60, M
@cherokeepatti I was kinda wondering if they might double up on the taxes to make up the difference.
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
@robb65 Sounds about right. Gas taxes are supposed to pay for road project costs and grants to states isn’t it?
MarineBob · 56-60, M
So now the small gas station owner must pay someone to come reprogram their their shit
@cherokeepatti exactly that why we having inflation bec of what the bank did in 2019-2020
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
@Darksideinthenight2 You don’t get it do you? Passing one stimulus after another and printing up money to cover it. It will keep inflation going.
@cherokeepatti i do get it. Thats why blaming biden for all this is nonsense
Well 1st it have to pass Congress which isnt expect to tho.

Plus when trump was president it wasn't a war in Ukraine nor China didn't shut down major cities in their country that also negatively influence the shortage of the supply chain. plus what the bank did in 2019-2020 to lower their rates to boost the economy then now has catch up with us with higher inflation. Btw the banks still making the profits. It similar to the crisis back in 2007 -2008
LetsGoBrandon · 31-35, M
Nothing to see. Just another fuck up where nobody benefits. That includes the people and Globalist's dirt bags.

It's getting nobody anywhere including themselves
MarineBob · 56-60, M
@LetsGoBrandon at least with President Trump most got 600.00 checks
LetsGoBrandon · 31-35, M
@MarineBob I didn't get it and wouldn't care. This country will restore when Trump gets back.

The way I'm seeing things from Political leaders stabbing Trump's back. It won't phase Trump and so as us.

These political elites are getting weaker
MarineBob · 56-60, M
@LetsGoBrandon yeah the idiots said i made to much money to qualify
I think the Tax Holiday idea is pretty pathetic, and I get the Biden Green Energy thing, but I also doubt it would be around 2$ a gallon even if Trump was still in office.
Budwick · 70-79, M
@MistyCee [quote]t I also doubt it would be around 2$ a gallon even if Trump was still in office.[/quote]

Don't forget Mistee - Trump does indeed have a magic wand.
Roadsterrider · 56-60, M
Amen brother, I drive usually 1000 miles a week doing customer visits. Sometimes I fillup 3-4 times a week depending on the range I have to drive.
Heartlander · 80-89, M
Maybe Biden can just give us all other thousand dollars so we can buy the latest made in China iPhone or maybe a better made in China TV?
meJess · F
I thought the US was self sufficient in oil, doesn’t that mean you can set your own prices?
robb65 · 56-60, M
@meJess Was.
checkoutanytime · 41-45, M
Pelosi isnt going to allow it, it seems her state is dependent on federal revenue
Too bad he didn't try for a windfall profits tax, instead of a tax cut.
Virgo79 · 56-60, M
Biden is an economic genus 🙄
irishmolly72 · 46-50, F
It's like Lenin playing basketball.

Adrift · 56-60, F
Ohh wee!
That will fix everything.
