Democratic Lieutenant Governor Candidate Says He’s Open To Suspending Gas Tax

June 21, 2022

Should Massachusetts suspend the gas tax?

State Senator Eric Lesser (D-Longmeadow), a candidate for lieutenant governor, says he’s open to the possibility.

“It’s appropriate to suspend the gas tax if we can do two things at the same time:  protect the state’s bond rating, which we have indication we can, and the second thing that’s very important is to preserve the funding streams for our infrastructure projects,” Lesser told WCVB’s On The Record over the weekend.

Massachusetts has a 24-cent-per-gallon tax on gas.

The average price for a gallon of gas in Massachusetts was $4.996 per gallon as of Tuesday morning, June 21, according to AAA.
