Gas Tax Holiday? 

There are both federal and state proposals on temporarily cutting the gas taxes to ease burdens on consumers.  The big challenge is that there is no guarantee consumers will see a reduction at the pumps given the limited supply chain. Basic economics tells us that the only way to lower prices at the pump is to increase the supply.

Liquid fuels funding would be affected unless there is replacement revenue, and that hits townships hard.
