Temporarily suspending the gas tax makes more sense. It would save motorists about 54 cents a gallon, and give relief where relief is needed. Even sending money based on registered vehicles makes more sense than an extra $250 per dependent. Unless the dependent is 16 or older, they're not driving.

Of course, they don't want to suspend the gas tax. They would rather use that money to redistribute the income to pay off voters that would lean toward keeping the incumbents in office.

Pay no attention to the inflationary aspects of just pushing more cash into the economy....

Governor Newsom — fix the electrical grid and water infrastructure instead of piddling away this massive windfall. If you don’t we’ll have nothing to show for it. Your short sightedness is incomprehensible.
