Pity those who live in California. They pay 30-40% higher gasoline bills.
Because of the liberal, tax-and-spend Democratic-controlled state legislature.
Direct and indirect taxes have spiked the price for every time Californians fill up.
Then add the unnecessary regulations on top of that, and the price of gas spikes up even more.
As of now, ordinary Californians are in total paying $2 billion more for gas because of these Cap and Trade taxes.
California is the first state in the country to require gas and oil companies to purchase carbon emission credits. These credits compensate for the companies’ ongoing release of carbon into the atmosphere.
The hidden tax adds a $0.12 tax to every gallon.
The tax hurts the poor, seniors—everyone!—because of the higher costs of gas.
And if other states aren’t paying attention, this tax could be coming to your state, too!
