Gas Tax Not on Table

April 15, 2021 – The White House said that raising the federal gasoline tax is not being considered as part of President Biden’s infrastructure package. White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that a gas tax increase is not being discussed when asked about reports that Biden was considering a hike to pay for his $2.25 trillion package. The president has proposed raising the corporate tax rate to pay for the package. “Fundamentally, he does not believe that paying for this historic investment in rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure and creating millions of jobs should be on the backs of Americans,” she said.
