Fight the new gas tax! Call in to the California Energy Commission

As you may have heard, Gov. Newsom has called a special session of the Legislature on December 5 to consider a new tax on oil companies that will raise the price of gasoline, again.

Californians already pay the highest gas taxes in the nation, plus many hidden costs due to regulations and restrictions on the production of gasoline. It’s time to tell Sacramento, “ENOUGH! No new taxes!”

On Tuesday, November 29, the California Energy Commission will hold an informational hearing to take testimony and public comment about the high cost of gasoline in California. We think this is a warm-up for the special session, setting the stage for a tax on oil companies that will end up costing consumers even more to fill their tank.

You can make your voice heard and tell the commission, “NO to higher taxes.” The CEC’s hearing begins at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday. Here’s the link for more information about the hearing, how to watch it on Zoom, and how to call in to give public comment: https://www.energy.ca.gov/event/workshop/2022-11/commissioner-hearing-california-gasoline-price-spikes-refinery-operations
