President Biden proposes ‘gas tax vacation’

US President Joe Biden has suggested that Congress pass a three-month “gas tax holiday” in an attempt to deal with rising gasoline prices for frustrated drivers across America.

Biden said a “gas tax vacation” will provide some immediate relief for families.

If enacted, the measure would suspend the federal gas tax for the next 90 days.

Members of the US president’s own party questioned his proposal to lower gasoline prices as the president delivered a message to oil companies.

“This is a time of war, global danger… Ukraine… these are not normal times,” Biden said.

“Lower the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you are paying for the product… do it now.”
