Biden Calls For Three-Month Pause To Federal Gas Tax


President Joe Biden called for a three-month pause to the federal gas tax on Wednesday to contend with “Putin’s Price Hike.”

The federal government imposes a gas tax of $0.184 per gallon of gasoline and $0.244 per gallon of diesel, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. President Biden is asking for a suspension of the tax through September without interruptions to the $10 billion required to bankroll the Highway Trust Fund.

“President Biden understands that high gas prices pose a significant challenge for working families,” a White House statement said. “Today, he is calling on Congress and states to take additional legislative action to provide direct relief to American consumers who have been hit with Putin’s Price Hike.”
