Following the praise for Biden’s ban on importing Russian Oil, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf pushed for a federal gas tax holiday.
Wolf supported the ban, calling it a real economic consequence to Russia’s actions and a clear message that business won’t be done with them.
Wolf then expressed his support for a federal gas tax holiday.
What is the federal gas tax holiday that Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf is supporting?
Federal gas taxes are requested to be suspended through the end of the year.
Between groceries and home bills like mortgages or electric, gas is becoming more unaffordable for Americans.
Wolf said that a tax suspension would ease the economic hardship Pennsylvania residents are currently facing.
This would happen without impacting infrastructure projects in the state that are funded through taxes.
Other governors joining Wolf include Governors Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, Jared Polis of Colorado, Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico and Tony Evers of Wisconsin.
They all signed a letter addressing both the Senate and the House.
