Are you ready, New Jersey?
Are you REALLY ready for this? We warned you about it in 2016. We asked you to mobilize. We begged you to protest.
Because that's when your state legislators in Trenton voted to hike your gas tax by an astronomical 23 cents per gallon.
But that wasn't the end of it. No, not by a long shot.
Because the swindlers in Trenton had more up their sleeves via a sneaky little provision in the bill.
So now, Governor Murphy & Co. have announced that New Jersey's gas will rise another 4.3 cents per gallon on Oct. 1.
How can THAT happen?
Well, Pilacious Phil's administration is authorized to make the hike because the law now stipulates that if the original gas tax brings in less than expected, the state can raise the rate to keep it on target.
The state says that this year motorists bought less gasoline in New Jersey (what a shocker!) and revenues are lagging. So, they'll raise the gas tax just like that -- with a snap of the gas pump.
We warned you, New Jersey!
This is just another boondoggle brought to you by the professional politicians in the Joizee Swamp otherwise known as Trenton -- as in You Make, Trenton Takes!
And below, highlighted in yellow, you'll find the names of the members of the state senate and state assembly who voted for this outrage. Blame them!
