#93 – Polis’ Gas Tax Stunt

Jared Polis’ is doubling down on his friend Joe Biden’s far-left energy policies, which are aimed at crushing the oil and gas industry. In another election-year stunt, Jared Polis has delayed his own gas tax until shortly after the November election. Polis’ gas tax was supposed to take effect this year. Election Year Polis decided to delay it until after the election so he could attempt to buy votes for his re-election. Polis’ gas tax starts with a two-cent per gallon increase and then goes up another cent each year through 2028.

Right now, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gas in Colorado stands at $4.20 cents*. When Jared Polis took office, gas was $2.20. Heidi Ganahl believes in an all-of-the-above energy approach that will continue investments in renewables without putting our oil and gas industries out of business.
