John McCain: Cut Taxes on Horseless Carriage Fuel Oil

McCain urged Congress to institute a "gas-tax holiday" by suspending the 18.4 cent per gallon federal gas tax and 24.4 cent diesel tax from late May to early September. By some estimates, the government would lose about $10 billion in revenue. He also renewed his call for the United States to stop adding to the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and thus lessen to some extent the worldwide demand for oil.

Combined, he said, the two proposals would reduce gas prices, which would have a trickle-down effect, and "help to spread relief across the American economy."
