Rep. Issa Slams CA Gas Tax Increase Taking Effect Today

Press Release
Nov 1, 2017

Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Vista) released the following statement slamming the California gas tax hike, which takes effect today. Starting today, California drivers will be forced to pay 12 cents more for every gallon of gasoline or 20 cents more for every gallon of diesel fuel at the pump.

"Starting this morning, every single time drivers fill their tanks they'll be reminded the tremendous cost that California State Democrats have imposed on working families across our state," said Congressman Darrell Issa. "This tax hike will be felt most by families living and working paycheck to paycheck who have already found it harder to make ends meet thanks to state policies that have driven up the cost of electricity, gasoline and the goods and services they use every day."

"Sacramento shouldn’t make families pay for its repeated financial mismanagement. California must repeal this misguided tax increase so we can help more families keep more of what they earn."


According to polling, 58% of Californians oppose the gas tax increase. According to the Sacramento Bee, "opposition is widespread. Voters in all major regions of the state other than the Bay Area...are unhappy about it."
