Now The Trump Administration is Considering Raising the Gas Tax

These clowns don't stop.

Top White House economic advisor Gary Cohn reportedly raised the prospect of hiking the federal gasoline, reports CNBC.

Cohn, the director of the National Economic Council, told a group of moderate Democrats and Republicans they would have the opportunity to vote to increase the gas tax when Congress considers an infrastructure package early next year, Politico reports.

The U.S. government currently applies a charge of 18.4 cents per gallon on retail gasoline.

In May, Trump said he was open to raising the gas tax in order to underwrite improvements to the nation's infrastructure.
