As gas prices continue to soar throughout our state and nation, our families are struggling to make ends meet and it is important that New York State take immediate action to help. Today, I joined with Senator Alexis Weik, Senator Phil Boyle and Senator Anthony Palumbo to call for quick passage of legislation (S.8483) that will provide all of our motorists with a gas tax holiday.
This legislation would remove the 46 cents per gallon state sales tax from motor fuels to ensure that our residents get the relief they need now. High gas prices increase the price of every part of life, cause stress on families and will impact our economy negatively - while we are still recovering from the COVID-19 crisis.
While the causes are numerous, the solution is simple - a quick pause of the gas tax will allow our still recovering economy to keep strengthening and protect all of our residents.

I hope you will join with me and sign my petition to suspend the gas tax.
