Talk about kicking working Maine families while they are down…

Janet Mills just released a report proposing a gas tax hike to increase electric vehicle use in the state, as if the current $3.43 gas price average in the state wasn’t already high enough.

Higher gas prices, increased home heatings costs, and bigger grocery bills. You can blame it all on Governor Mills.

“While some folks won’t mind an increased gas tax to make it easier to charge their Telsa, the average Mainer without a practical use or financial ability to purchase and use an electric vehicle should be outraged at Janet Mills,” said RGA spokesman Will Reinert.“Governor Mills’ gas tax proposal will hurt already struggling Maine families just trying to commute to work or pick their kids up from school during an already difficult time of record inflation.”
