Governor Gordon Works to Develop Solutions for Rising Fuel Prices

Written by on June 9, 2022

Governor Mark Gordon has announced the creation of a Gas and Diesel Price Working Group that will focus on ways to find relief for consumers “feeling the pinch of rising fuel costs.” This action comes as a response to surging gas and diesel prices.

The working group will include members of the Governor’s cabinet, representatives of the transportation and agriculture industries, as well as citizens and legislators.

“Fuel prices have hit yet another high this past week, driving inflation affecting our seniors, veterans and all Wyoming citizens,” Governor Gordon said. “Yet, all we hear out of Washington, DC is that it’s someone else’s fault, and there’s no end in sight. Here in Wyoming we need to look for any possible way we can provide some relief for our citizens.”

“I’m committed to considering any and all possible ways, including tax reductions, to provide some quick relief for consumers,” Gordon adds.

Tasked to consider a wide range of options, the group will seek out any relief that will reduce “prices at the pump” for gasoline and diesel and other related products impacted by rising prices in the state.

“It is no secret that the Biden Administration’s failed economic policies have directly contributed to inflation,” Governor Gordon explains. “Americans are experiencing the direct consequences of President Biden’s bungled energy policy – from the President’s 2020 Executive Order banning oil and gas leasing on federal lands, to its dogmatic insistence on regulation over innovation to address the issues we face today. Americans are hurting and need some relief.”
