Mark Taylor has called on Gov. Sonny Perdue to suspend the state gas tax in Georgia.
Yes, it’s because he is running for Governor himself. Still.
Perdue has raised the gas tax three times since taking office. Georgia used to pride itself on having the 2nd lowest gas tax in the nation. Now it’s the 20th highest gas tax in the nation, up 45% since Gov. Perdue took office. When he brags about the budget, notice where the money came from – and where it’s not going.
Ask Gov. Perdue to suspend the gas tax today!
While you’re at it, take a quick look at the cheapest gas in your area. You’ll need it.
(Action sponsored by the Democratic Party of Georgia)
If you’re not in Georgia, contact your own governor to request the same.
Our gas bills for the last two months have caused something like heart palpitations for hubby and me – this on top of budget-busting interest rate increases.

So I went to look and see…. and here’s what I found. Governor Purdue, our guy – who got into office running on the Confederate Flag, staunch supporter of our Chief Deceiver in the White House.
Governor Gas Guy
The retail prices don’t even reflect the wholesale prices. Standard
modus operandi of the right. When he was running, he proposed reregulation – now he won’t discuss it.
Georgia rates used to be the third lowest in the nation. When wholesale prices rose, our residential prices rose too. When they went down, our prices still stayed “disproportionally high.”
Are you starting to shiver yet? I am. We have our house at 62 degrees, and our bill was well over $300. Last year it was $92.
