(Washington, DC) — Congresswoman Angie Craig is co-sponsoring a bill that would temporarily suspend the federal gasoline tax. The Gas Prices Relief Act would put the 18-point-four-cent gas tax on hold until next January. The Minnesota Democrat says, “Congress must do all it can to lower costs for working families.” Craig is also calling on Minnesota lawmakers to temporarily pause the state’s 28-and-a-half-cent gas tax for the rest of the year. The Second District representative notes that action on the state and federal levels could reduce gas prices by 47-cents a gallon.
