Don't Let The Gas Tax Back
Yorktown Supervisor Matt Slater, candidate for the 94th Assembly District, called on the state legislature to extend the gas tax holiday through the winter.
SHRUB OAK, NY - Since June New York State has had a gas tax holiday in place on motor fuel saving consumers an estimated 16 cents per gallon. This tax holiday is set to expire at the end of the year which state and local officials say should be extended through the winter.
Matt Slater, Yorktown Town Supervisor and candidate for the 94th Assembly District said, "The current economy is crushing middle class families, small businesses and our seniors. We know it is going to cost a small fortune to heat our homes and keep our lights on this winter. For once, New York State can be proactive and extend the current gas tax holiday through the winter months to give us an ounce of relief at the pump."
New York State Assemblyman Mike Lawler said, "Across the country and here in New York we are seeing gas and home heating costs spike. We need to get on the path to energy independence. Joe Biden and Kathy Hochul have sought to resitrct domestict production of energy creating a mess for us all. New Yorkers are hurting and are struggling to pay for groceries, struggling to pay at the pump and struglging to pay our home heating costs. I am proud to join the effort today to call on Governor Hochul to bring us back for a special session to extend the gast tax holiday through the winter because Hudson Valley families cannot afford for gas prices to rise any further."
For once, New York State can be proactive and extend the current gas tax holiday through the winter months to give us an ounce of relief at the pump.
