Suspend gas tax... right, in our dreams.

That would only take care of about 50¢ of each gallon.

Just a pittance, really.

They're talking about suspending the Oklahoma state gas tax ($0.17) through the end of the year. (FOX 23 News, Tulsa)

I would like to see a suspended gas tax. Maybe we should make some noise to our representatives about it.

Nothing good is going to come out of this, politics speaking.

CT would never drop our tax that is for sure.

They need to stop putting all that additive shit in the fuel also. That alone would cut the price by .70

At least that's what some dude said on NPR

Thought he already rescinded fuel grade/blend restrictions? I know nationally their are over 40+ blends as required by different federal, state, and city restrictions. I though it was already lifted temporarily to allow gas to move freely from state to state. Removing the fuel tax would be nice and it would help the GOP, not going to happen though. Also their is no guarantee co.'s would pass on savings.

they already suspended the Clean Air Act (yesterday) in regards to fuel for this very reason. Allows refinerys to produce dirtier fuel, faster, in greater quantites with less additives.

I wouldn't think that dropping taxes would be something that could be done with an execuitive order, as they were implimented by laws.

Now EPA and other regulations could be changed.

... you're right, wouldn't even get much resistance from the envirowackos right now either

FWIW, Bush is a hero but it won't be recognised for some time if ever. He acted quickly, he got resources mobilized as fast as humanly possible, he's getting the deadwood Congress moving. THe problem is, he is following the rules and the Governers and Mayors of the affected areas, LA mainly, are a bunch of clueless fucks and it's showing.

We just got a $.03 bump in our tax in July. Another 6 cents to follow inside of two years, IRC. Bringing it to around $.40.

Minnesota has never seen a tax that doesn't last forever, unless there is another one to take it's place

State tacks on 25 cents a gallon here..... $3 + per gallon has BEEN a reality in some parts of the state here already.... I find it amusing to listen to all the crybabies on here boo-hooing about paying $2.50 for super and such

Do you think some movies are prophetic?

I think dropping the EPA regulations will help with the supply problems quickly. I am also doing my part by consuming less and not using my A/C.

That would kick ass and would be brilliant. What idiot would protest it? Even an ignorant blue stater would vote out any politition out of office.

If that is in regulations he could do it.

However things like TAXES and Environment Law are controlled by Congress and he has no authority to suspend them.

He's the president, not a dictator, his powers ARE limited.

Anyone up for an effort to get some repeals going??? I would say fire mission but don't know if that is appropriate? A organized effort bu our members to get certain legisltion moving in regards to GAS/OIL?

Bush has also opened the petroleum reserves. He has resisted pressure to do so in the past, but now is a real time of emergency.
