DeSantis visits Daytona Buc-ee's to announce proposal to waive Florida's gas tax

DAYTONA BEACH - Gov. Ron DeSantis visited Florida's largest gas station on Monday morning to announce a proposal to temporarily waive the state's gasoline tax next year to offset soaring fuel pump prices.

The waiver, pending approval by the state Legislature during the annual session that begins Jan. 11, could take effect in early 2022.

"What we're going to be proposing in the next legislative session is over a billion dollars in gas tax relief for Florida families," said DeSantis at a press conference held at the massive 104-pump Buc-ee's gas station in Daytona Beach. "We're taking over 25 cents from Florida and we'll basically zero that out as long as we can."

Thanks to federal COVID-19 stimulus funds, DeSantis said the state is "in great financial shape," with surpluses that should allow infrastructure projects to continue to be funded, at least for the near future. "I don't think we're going to miss a beat," he said.

A politician who is trying to help the people out. Don't see that from the dems. They want to raise gas taxes higher, of course.

Aren't they opening up the reserves to increase supply?

That will be a blip - about three days worth of consumption. Dementia Joe's stupid environmental policies are the problem. As long as we are discouraging supply, prices will go higher.

Worrying about the environment is all fine-and-dandy but, until there are plentiful, viable, alternatives, we will have to continue the use of "oil".

Again, China pollutes more than the rest of the world combined.

And, that CO2 capture facility in Norway (?) is a "good start" but, but, but, it must operate for a full year in order to capture just 3 seconds worth of carbon emissions!

A "win win" is far in the future. Move to higher ground.

LOL keep telling yourself that if it makes you feel better....... when crude hit practically ZERO a couple of years ago, we saw a whopping .25 reduction at the pump.

That makes no sense whatsoever. Say something that makes sense next time so that I can bash you accurately. BTW, the price of oil did not go to zero. Oil futures went negative for part of a day. Futures are different animal than a barrel of oil.

Yes, but if we cut exports then we can make a dent. We'll see...

Hmmmm, it seems that since our gas tax orimarily fund road improvements, seems Joe's infrastructure plan is allowing this to happen. If that's the case, good move Joe, good move Ron. That's working as a team...

Whats hysterical is that you think Joe's infrastructure plan is free.

$20 Billion [wink] doesn't sound "free", either.

That's not a beat Desantis will be missing, it's the tax revenues that fund FDOT. Republicans don't balance their budgets, they postpone to make someone else make those painful decisions and then they use that as a basis to get elected again. The gasoline tax cut will not pay for itself, it will not ease the burden on most drivers in any meaningful way and it's coming back for the same reason it's here now, we can't pay for roads with pandering.

Nationalize oil production, and produce what's needed at a reasonable price, or leave it to the so called "free market" and deal with the production-supply-price fluctuations that are inherent to that system.

Desantis said it might save $30 a month. It will go unnoticed and the state will become deeper in debt.

No suprise that progs are against something that helps the average citizen. But you are cheering the return of the SALT deduction, aren't you?

This may force an issue that's going to be more relevant as electric cars become more prominent. We need another way to fund that does not relate to gas.

Republican states will continue to claim low tax wins as the Federal government foots the bill for infrastructure repairs through Democratic legislation.
