SACRAMENTA, Calif. (AP) – Californians who own cars can get up to $ 800 from the state to help offset record high gas prices.
Gov. Gavin News announced the proposal on Wednesday. His plan is for owners of registered cars to receive $ 400 for a vehicle with a two-car limit. Including people who own electric cars.
For people who don’t have cars, Newsom wants the state to pay for their bus or train within three months.
In total, the proposal will cost $ 11 billion. About $ 1.1 billion will be used to suspend the planned increase in state taxes on diesel and conventional gas.
In California, conventional gas prices – a record $ 5.88 per gallon – are the highest in the country.
