Help Me Prevent A Connecticut Gas Tax Hike

June 20, 2013

One of the largest gas tax hikes in state history is scheduled to hit Connecticut on July 1.

The July 1 gas tax hike would raise prices at the pump in Connecticut by about 4 cents per gallon.

The gas tax in Connecticut is already about 22 cents higher than in neighboring states like Massachusetts.

You Can Help Us Stop the July 1 Gas Tax Hike!

Sign The Petition Below.

The tax set to increase is a hidden state tax on gasoline that you pay above and beyond the state (25¢) and federal (18.4¢) per-gallon taxes. This tax is a percentage of the wholesale price of gasoline and is scheduled to increase 16% on July 1st.

And Governor Malloy is NOT using gas tax revenues to fix roads and bridges as was originally intended. Instead, the money is being used to fund the growth of government bureaucracy.

Demand that this gas tax hike not go through.

Together, we can say “Enough is Enough!”

Join me in saying “No” to the July 1 gas tax hike!

Please fill out the information below to sign the online petition.

Or, join me on Monday, June 24th between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to fill up at our local participating Gulf gas station at 125 West Street (Rt. 167) in Simsbury, and sign the petition in person.

Thank you!
