California’s ‘Secret’ 50-Cent Gas Tax Hike to Combat Phony Global Warming

Last September, the California Air Resources Board (CARB), the state’s primary environmental regulator, reported gas prices will rise next year by about 50 cents a gallon and every year thereafter to aid in clean air efforts. Gasoline price increases are predicted due to the Low Carbon Fuel Standard reforms that were created in 2007, likely rising by 47 cents next year and 52 cents by 2026. Long-term projections suggest gasoline could surge by $1.15. The increase will punish middle class and low income Californians and is a push to get people to buy electric vehicles (EV).

A longstanding emissions reduction program may lead to a 50-cent increase in gasoline prices within two years in California, according to a little-known state air quality regulator report.

In September, the California Air Resources Board (CARB), the state’s primary environmental regulator, reported gas prices will rise next year by about 50 cents a gallon and every year thereafter to aid in clean air efforts. The price increase does not include the existing gas tax in the state.

Republican state Sen. Janet Nguyen, one of the legislature’s most critical tax hawks, told Fox News Digital the “secret” tax increase “would penalize the majority of Californians.”

“The middle class, the low income, they can’t afford gas to go to school, work or grocery or the doctor’s office,” Nguyen said. “No one knows about this. I think people just think it’s a tax, so they don’t know the difference between the carbon tax versus the state tax. It’s almost like a tax on the tax.”

The report foresees gasoline price increases due to the Low Carbon Fuel Standard reforms that were created in 2007, likely rising by 47 cents next year and 52 cents by 2026. Diesel prices could climb by 59 cents this year and 66 cents in two years. Long-term projections suggest gasoline could surge by $1.15 and diesel by $1.50 per gallon from 2031 to 2046, with jet fuel increasing by $1.21.

The air board staff later called the gas price hike projections “incomplete” in a December report, focusing instead on the cost savings to drivers as more people transition to EVs.

The report comes as CARB finalized new rules mandating a rapid transition from traditional petroleum-powered modes of transportation to zero-emissions alternatives as it pursues a sweeping climate agenda. CARB has identified passenger cars, heavy-duty trucking, freight trains and harbor vessels for the changeover. 

California is also phasing out new gas-powered cars and mandating 100% electric vehicle sales by 2035. Nearly 20 other states have since adopted those rules, meaning more than 40% of the country will be affected by the mandate to some extent.

June 21, 2024 AntiWar 4

A proposal expands required draft registration to young women. Another proposal is for automatic registration for young men only.

These governments have to keep themselves in a job and justify their existence somehow. It’s up to the people to stop them.

The New California 51st State movement is a “We The People” approach to ENDING the tyranny of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) like CARB. The NGOs represent a type of regional governance by unelected “officials” which can be conceptualized as Soviet-style governance utilized by communists. When New California achieves statehood, CARB, Cal-EPA, the Coastal Commission, and all of the NGOs will be neutralized on day 1 under the new state constitution.
