The bastards will never give the people a break. The price of oil is falling so the government wants to squeeze some of the benefit for itself.
President Barack Obama will propose a $10 a barrel tax on oil to pay for transportation programs, according to Politico.
The fee could add as much as 25 cents a gallon to the cost of gasoline.
The proposal is due to be included in Obama's final budget request next week.
Maybe the Republican-controlled Congress can act like men and stop this, but no doubt this will result in their own backdoor tax increases.
