Biden to call on Congress to suspend gas tax for three months

68% Center coverage: 227 sources
Biden will call on Congress to suspend federal gasoline and diesel taxes for three months. He will also ask states to suspend their own gas taxes or provide relief to consumers. The White House says the three-month suspension will cost about $10 billion. The administration is also putting public pressure on oil companies to help Americans. If the gas savings were fully passed along to consumers, people would save roughly 3.6% at the pump. Many economists and lawmakers from both parties view the idea of a gas tax holiday with skepticism.See the Story
