Almost every year, the Legislature proposes another oil tax, and it fails. There’s good reason, too. Average California families, like mine, can’t afford to bear the burden of higher oil taxes.
If the Legislature were to pass another oil tax, that could mean higher prices at the pump and higher transportation costs for nearly everything we purchase, food included.
The Legislature should focus on getting our economy back on the pathway to success and helping their constituents find jobs. Proposals like these are backward and will harm California families that are just trying to get by.
