PIRG and Environment America joined a chorus of criticism for The Biden Administration's proposed three-month federal gas tax holiday, announced on June 22nd. Articles in the Washington Post, Streetsblog, Mass Insider, and more featured quotes from PIRG’s Matt Casale.

“To really help consumers, we need more than a gas tax holiday — we need real transportation solutions that do not further deepen our dependence on cars and oil over the long haul,” says Casale.
