"They Just Want Our Money": California's Gas Tax Has Risen Again

You know what we were just thinking California could use? Higher taxes.

And it must not just be us "thinking clearly" because the state is about to push through yet another gas excise tax increase that has the state's citizens so annoyed they have committed to "not go anywhere". This begs the Laffer-curve inspired question: what's a 51.1 cent per gallon tax worth when people in the state have just abandoned buying gas altogether?

The new tax went into effect on Thursday, according to CBS 8. It comes from an automatic increase as part of Senate Bill 1 that was signed into law in 2017. The bill incrementally raises the fuel excise tax each year for road and bridge repairs. The report says the tax is now 51.1 cents per gallon, putting California's gas and state taxes at the highest in the country.
