https://www.nytimes.com/2022/06/22/us/politics/biden-gas-tax-holiday.html

WASHINGTON — President Biden plans to call on Congress on Wednesday to temporarily suspend the federal gas tax, an effort to dampen the soaring fuel prices that have stoked frustration across the United States.

During a speech on Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Biden will ask Congress to lift the federal taxes — about 18 cents per gallon of gasoline and 24 cents per gallon of diesel — through the end of September, just before the fall midterm elections, according to senior officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the announcement. The president will also ask states to suspend their own gas taxes, hoping to alleviate the economic pain that has contributed to his diminishing popularity.

The White House will face an uphill battle to get Congress to approve the holiday, however. While the administration and some congressional Democrats have for months discussed such a suspension, Republicans widely oppose it and have accused the administration of undermining the energy industry. Even members of Mr. Biden’s own party, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi, have expressed concern that companies would absorb much of the savings, leaving little for consumers.

Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, quickly dismissed the president’s call for suspending the tax. “This administration’s big new idea is a silly proposal that senior members of his own party have already shot down well in advance,” he said.

Mr. Biden will demand that companies ensure that consumers benefit from the moratorium on the federal tax, the officials said, though they did not specify how he might do so. The administration estimates that the combination of several possible steps — the suspension of the tax, a halt on state gas taxes and an increase in refining capacity by oil companies — would lower gas prices by at least $1 a gallon.
>>
But critics have questioned the effectiveness of gas tax holidays, dismissing the idea as little more than a desperate attempt by the White House and vulnerable Democrats to show that the party is attentive to Americans’ financial pain.

Economists and some members of Congress have criticized the idea of suspending the federal gas tax as a wasteful step for the government, given the revenue that would be sacrificed in a bid to provide only a mild dose of relief to consumers. Its impact on them would be quite limited: The tax is now such a small slice of the price at the pump, coming in at less than 5 percent of the total cost, that Americans might not even notice its absence.

“I don’t think it moves the needle on people’s willingness to buy more, and it doesn’t exactly save them a whole lot of money, either,” said Garrett Golding, a business economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. “It sounds like something is being done to lower gas prices, but there’s not a whole lot of there there.”

This year, oil and refined fuel prices rose to their highest levels in 14 years because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the sanctions imposed on President Vladimir V. Putin and a rebound in energy use as the United States recovers from the coronavirus pandemic. The White House has increasingly tried to direct the blame for the rising prices toward Russia, a strategy that has done little to quell anxiety among Americans. The national average for regular gasoline was $4.95 per gallon on Wednesday, according to AAA, after reaching $5 this month.

Mr. Biden has also released strategic petroleum reserves and suspended a ban on summertime sales of higher-ethanol gasoline blends to try to temper price increases, frustrating climate activists still unhappy over the collapse of Mr. Biden’s climate and social spending package.
>>
Congress has not increased the federal gas tax since 1993. But it has never lifted the tax either. Taxes on gasoline and diesel now supply a majority of federal funding used to build and maintain highways — $36.5 billion in 2019 — although outlays have exceeded dedicated revenues in recent years.

That means Mr. Biden’s latest step to address one political vulnerability could undermine funding for one of the primary legislative accomplishments during his time in office: investments in infrastructure.

“I have not been for alleviating the gas tax because of the infrastructure implications there,” Senator Shelley Moore Capito, Republican of West Virginia, said on Wednesday.

But one of the more common questions she hears from constituents, she added, is: What about my gasoline?

“I think it’s a temporary fix,” Ms. Capito said. “But yes, people were saying, ‘Do something.’”

Senator Rick Scott of Florida, the chairman of the Senate Republicans’ campaign arm, questioned where the federal government would find revenue normally generated from the gas tax that supports building roads, bridges and other infrastructure projects in his state.

“What expenses are we going to cut out?” he said, adding that the proposal to suspend the tax shows that “Democrats know they’re in deep trouble.”

Mr. Biden, who has publicly discussed the idea of a tax holiday in recent days, sought to assuage those concerns on Tuesday.

“Look, it will have some impact, but it’s not going to have an impact on major road construction and major repairs,” he told reporters, adding that the administration had plenty of capacity to maintain roads.

The suspension of the taxes would cost roughly $10 billion. Senior administration officials said Mr. Biden would ask Congress to dip into other pots of money to backfill the loss.
>>
But as global oil demand and a fractured market have sent prices soaring, experts have questioned how much a gas tax holiday would benefit consumers.

“Whatever you thought of the merits of a gas tax holiday in February, it is a worse idea now,” Jason Furman, the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Barack Obama, posted on Twitter, arguing that the oil industry was likely to pocket most of the savings.

As one example, even if all of the benefits were passed on to consumers, the owner of a Ford F-150 that gets 20 miles to the gallon driving a thousand miles per month would save about $9 if the federal gas tax were suspended.

Progressives and energy experts have advocated alternative ways to smooth out gas price shocks or siphon off some of the ballooning profits that oil companies and refiners have taken in while supply has remained constrained. In her 2008 campaign for the presidency, as inflation-adjusted prices approached an even higher point, Hillary Clinton proposed pairing a gas tax holiday with a levy on oil company profits.

But among the limited tools that the federal government has at its disposal to lower gas prices, lifting taxes could resonate the most with Americans.

“That’s the thing that voters care about. That’s the thing that politicians care about,” said Erich Muehlegger, an associate economics professor at the University of California, Davis. “Things like a windfall tax on oil companies might be attractive from a political standpoint, but we don’t necessarily think they’ll have an immediate impact on gas prices.”

Dr. Muehlegger’s research has found that drivers adjust their consumption more in response to changes in gas prices than they do to market-based changes of similar magnitude, in part because of the media attention generated by those changes.
>>
Senator Maggie Hassan, Democrat of New Hampshire, who faces a tough re-election bid, said Mr. Biden would need to go further to provide relief to voters. In a statement, she said the White House should move forward with a gas tax suspension for the rest of the year, rather than only three months.

“I will keep pressing my colleagues in Congress to suspend the gas tax, and I continue to urge the president to take executive action to immediately lower families’ energy costs,” she said.

States have more power to lower gas prices, since their taxes and fees have been steadily rising, to about 38 cents per gallon on average. Three states have so far passed and completed gas tax holidays: Maryland, Georgia and Connecticut. New York suspended its tax at the beginning of this month, and Florida will lift its tax for the month of October.

However, gasoline producers and retailers would most likely reap some of the benefits. An analysis by economists with the University of Pennsylvania’s Penn Wharton Budget Model showed that in the states where gas price holidays have concluded, between 58 percent and 87 percent of the suspended gas tax value was passed on to consumers, with suppliers absorbing the rest. A federal suspension would be so much smaller that it may be obscured be the volatile underlying price of oil, which has fallen over the past week.

Mr. Biden also plans to take aim at oil companies on Wednesday, demanding they expand refining capacity to bring down costs at the pump, only days after accusing executives of profiteering and “worsening the pain” for consumers. Even as refineries have struggled to keep up with growing demand, refiners have added less than 1 percent to their capacity worldwide.

Also Biden's executive orders that fucked domestic production. Let's just keep blaming Russia though, I guess that's a step up from blaming Trump for all of your failures.

NTA, before COVID prices were about $2.30 in 2019 and around $1.80 during the pandemic. So to rephrase that anon's question for him, why was gas cheaper under Trump than under Biden?

>>1061112
Your point?

What policy does Biden have that caused gas prices to triple? Keystone XL pipeline was never operational.
>>
>>1061114
Was Trump stealing gas? Could be
>>
>>1061114
A few reasons, really.
The supply chain disruption during the pandemic lead to a drop in demand and consequent decrease in supply which has not yet rebounded to meet renewed demand now that the pandemic's over. Also, the sanctions on Russia reducing their energy exports, as much as fags want to deny it for whatever reason, has an impact on supply. Also, energy companies effectively having an oligopoly allows them to fuck consumers with basically no consequences because our government is full of spineless cucks.
Take your pick, or you can just blame Biden.
>>

Well this is just a wild ass guess on my part but perhaps telling every media outlet you're going to get rid of oil companies and then pushing orders that hurt oil companies as soon as you take office was probably a bad idea when every single civilized nation on the planet depends on oil for survival since the industrial revolution.
>>
>>1061129
the president personally selects the gas price, which is one of their main duties. trump selected a low price because he loves americans and is a hero. biden selected a higher price higher price because he hates america and is a traitor. any other questions?

Yeah how on earth could the president of the United States, with the power to shut down a company's development, affect the cost of anything by telling the world he wants to get rid of it? A real mystery.

Keystone, Alaska, New Mexico, federal lands halt, Paris accords, new EPA restrictions, doubled royalty feeds for drilling, proposing methane tax, etc. etc. like we haven't had this conversation a thousand times. But I guess that was all Russia's fault.
>>
>>1061145
finally, a high IQ 4channel user who is actually aware of how gas prices are determined
ffs anons, please do your research. there is a lever in the oval office that the president uses to set the price of gas. if a patriot is in office, such as father trump, they will set the price to a low number because they love america and actually care about us. if a demonrat attains office (by stealing the election), they will set the price very high due to their traitorous and ebil nature.

Yes; it is essential as many people drive 20+ miles to get to work. You will ensure the doom of this country if people are having to pay triple the price for gas compared to before the pandemic.
>>
>>1061148
increase public education so that they can learn about the presidential gas price lever and recognize that the reason why gas prices are so high is because biden set the lever high. and the reason why it was low during father trump's era was that he had set the lever very low. when enough americans are smart enough to realize the president personally selects the gas price, they'll vote for the good candidates that care about america like our former/future great president donald trump

The president of the united states telling an entire business that he wants to delete them means they're less likely to take risks and are going to focus on survival until the next president takes office, especially when our current president demonstrates the power to order the shutdown of a project several years in development.

It was difficult to say any of those were the primary reason. Spending will increase with improved cash flow, but I don’t see companies raising capital and going into debt to invest in production growth.
>You're aware that these companies still hold leases to millions of acres that they haven't even started drilling yet, right?
Why should they? Why should they pour money into drilling during a time of higher taxes and regulations, and pay more because of it, when they can be prevented from purchasing any new lands and their business goes under if what they have dries up?

Why is it that every single time any thread with Biden and Gas in the subject we have to argue with democrats why high prices are his fault? This is getting old. I don't see this much resistance when we talk about Afghanistan, inflation, or any other event that totally wasn't his fault.

exactly. anyone who is in the know is aware of the presidential gas price lever located in the oval office.
biden set it high. he hates americans. it's as simple as that.
why won't he lower the prices? because he's an ebil demonrat.
why were the prices low during father trump's presidency? because he set the gas price lever to low (~$2ish)
this isn't up for debate. do your research and educate yourself, dummycrats. instead, they study gender studies lmaooooo, yikes.

Hmm I wonder if keeping prices high will result in a candidate friendlier to big oil being elected

Not a doctor, but I think this may be caused by the low sales during the pandemic

And? Nationalizing the system and removing he profit motive would greatly reduce prices.

>But critics have questioned the effectiveness of gas tax holidays, dismissing the idea as little more than a desperate attempt by the White House and vulnerable Democrats to show that the party is attentive to Americans’ financial pain.

Actually, this would be highly effective. The politicians could halt taxes and announce to each state how much consumers should save as a result. Gas companies would then either choose to drop prices by that much, or suffer the PR backlash that comes with not doing that, and politicians would actually have done something. There is no way for corps to dodge this PR bullet, so it's perfect for shifting blame if they don't cooperate. Media will be assured ragebait articles calling out anyone who doesn't cooperate.

Obviously there is going to be a impact on what that tax pays for (cough politician's wallets & pork barrel shit cough), but no one cares for that.

It's more accurate to say oil companies control the price of gas more than Biden does. Biden can try to control the price all day but won't have 1/10th as much effect as internal oil company intervention.

Quite possibly the fact that their new leases have all been cancelled is the reason they are having to limit drilling for that stupid "investor pressure to maintain capital discipline" you people always bitch about?
Biden cut off new leases, and now with zero prospects for new leases, they have huge pressure to "maintain capital discipline"

And how much of a role does inflation play in these profits?
>>
>>1061305
None.
To illustrate this, if you look at profit MARGINS instead of net income, you'll see that some of these companies increased their margins by almost 50% last year from the year before.
While net income will be higher due to inflation, profit margins consist of net income as a percentage of total revenue, so it includes the higher cost of doing business due to inflation.
It's undeniable that these companies are doing better than before, it's what happens when an oligopoly inherits a market that's been shaken up after a crisis.

Biden is why prices are high. This has been repeatedly demonstrated to you bots over and over again. Sticking your head in the sand doesn't change the facts.

Quite possibly Bidens cancelling of all their new leases on drilling have backed them into a corner where they are forced to prioritize "capital responsibility" since they lost any new land to drill on, and I'm sure they've already drilled in the easiest land they have left, leaving the least profitable reserves as their only future supply left (for the time being)
