Would changing the state gas tax save you money?  –  NewsSacramento

“Feels like price-fixing. Feels like something’s going on that shouldn’t be,” Dayan Carlsen said as he pumped gas. Whatever grade you’re buying, you’re feeling the burning hole in your wallet. AAA reports Thursday’s national average for gas is $3.30. In California, it’s close to $4.66 – about $1.35 more than what the rest of the country pays. Assemblyman Kevin Kiley, representing the sixth district, says he hears similar sentiments from constituents.

“I pump $60 of gas and it doesn’t even fill it up,” she said. Brianna Briambla says $5 is a lot of money.

But Governor Gavin Newsom only wants to halt the next scheduled increase of the gas tax, which means it’ll still be more than $0.50. He’s claiming the state can afford the halt because of a surplus. So, what does this mean for Californians? He recently introduced Assembly Bill 1638 which aims to suspend the gas tax immediately for six months in hopes of bringing relief to taxpayers.
