Somebody just told Gov. Ed Rendell that a gallon of gas now costs $4.00 in Pennsylvania. The governor could provide Pennsylvania residents immediate relief from the state's 32-cent gas tax, but that's not likely to happen. Instead, the governor is now going to allow gas stations to sell gas by the half-gallon.
Imagine if the state and federal governments would suspend the gas tax over the summer. Consumers would see a 50-cent reduction in the price of a gallon of gas. Don't hold your breath. Politicians don't pay for gas -- you do -- and you'll continue to pay through the nose while politicians go on vacation this summer.
