Gas Tax Break Out of Fuel, Governors Hope Still Running High

May 5th, 2008 by flanews

The Governors plan for a statewide gas tax holiday ran out of fuel. Governor Charlie Crist urged the legislature to reduce the states gas tax by 10 cents for two weeks in July. Many lawmakers opposed the plan because of the budget shortfall and the millions the state would lose. Crist says he hasnt given up hope for a gas tax break just because the state legislative session ended.

I wish they could have done that, but maybe theyll do it on the national level, said Crist.

Presidential Candidates Senator John McCain and Senator Hillary Clinton both support suspending the federal gas tax this summer.
