I’d encourage everyone to also check out what the Presidential candidates are saying. Two are suggesting that the government suspend the 18 cent gas tax for consumers and businesses. One says that it won’t do anything. As a business person who ships and receives and who’s freight costs have sky-rocketed, I can tell you that 18 cents would help a great deal.

Remember that ALL taxes are paid by individuals and consumers. There isn’t a single business or corporation that pays one red cent in taxes. Any increase in corporate taxes are passed through to the consumer in higher prices because a business MUST achieve a certain return on its investment or else it will cease to exist.
