Mark Kennedy Gas Price plan

Mark Kennedy has a plan to lower the price of gas by a whopping 17 cents a gallon by eliminating the gas tax on a trial basis. That’s great I wouldn't mind saving 17 cents a gallon, only problem is the government is going to have to collect that 17 cents from me somewhere else.

The only potential winners out of this plan are the oil companies as they would have an additional 17 cents they could raise without the consumers noticing. The reality is adding 17 cents to the gas tax would be more effective in creating the changes necessary to slow the growth of gas prices, and move us toward other options.

Lets hope the voters aren't gullible enough to buy into this example of poor leadership.
