It seems politicians in Washington can’t help themselves. While Americans are just starting to feel tax relief from President Trump’s tax cuts, some in Congress are already floating the idea of a federal gas tax hike.
The federal gas tax is one of the most regressive taxes in existence. It disproportionally affects lower-income people, who see a more substantial portion of their paychecks go towards energy.
A recent study by Strategas Research found that “60% of the individual tax cut savings in 2018 would be wiped out by rising gasoline prices and a $.25 per gallon gasoline tax increase.”
There is no need for a gas tax hike. The problem is gas tax revenue is siphoned off to pay for projects unrelated to roads and bridges.
