Ron DeSantis rolls out plan to ‘zero out’ gas taxes, lower prices at the pump

During stops at convenience stores in Daytona and Jacksonville, Gov. Ron DeSantis said he intends to propose “over a billion dollars in gas tax relief for Florida families” as a hedge against inflation.
Florida would “basically zero out” the 26.5 cent per gallon state gas tax for “as long as we can,” DeSantis said at the Daytona Buc-ee’s early Monday morning.

DeSantis noted Florida has always “been very strong on tax relief,” citing back to school and sportsmen tax holidays. But he suggested this was even more important.

“This is really, really big to be able to help people,” DeSantis said in Daytona.

DeSantis said the House and Senate are ready to move also.
