As the price of gas in the Mountain State hovers around five dollars a gallon, Governor Jim Justice has said no to a gas tax holiday. 

Blaming the Biden administration for the high money for infrastructure would be hard to replace.

U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito agrees, “I don’t think erasing the gas tax is the best way to solve a very difficult problem. And I don’t it can be done, and it’s really not being talked about on the federal level. I think there are a couple of bills but they aren’t going anywhere.”

West Virginia’s gas tax is about 36 cents a gallon, with the federal government tacking on another 18 cents.
