Biden Calls for Three-Month Federal Gas Tax Suspension

President Biden is confronting ongoing pain at the pump.

Speaking at the White House, Biden called on Congress authorize a three-month gas tax holiday.

He said states should do the same with their gas taxes.

The federal gas tax is a little over 18-cents per gallon.

Biden described the move as offering a little breathing room.

In earlier remarks, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell called a suspension of the gas tax an “ineffective stunt.”
