With more than 500,000 signatures required to repeal the massive Gas Tax that will cost Californian families over $700 per year, the Gas Tax Repeal campaign is kicking off its Coachella Valley “signature storm” events on Monday, January 22nd to continue the intense signature collection pace required to repeal the tax.
In order to raise awareness for the repeal, gas station owner Nachhattar Chandi is lowering prices of regular unleaded gasoline to $1.99/gal during Monday’s launch event from 1 to 4pm at his Arco Station at 42334 Jefferson St in Indio. Motorists will also be able to sign the gas tax repeal petition at other gas stations that Mr. Chandi owns in the region.
“I’m proud to be part of the statewide movement to repeal this Gas Tax that has been devastating to working families and seniors on a fixed income,” said Kimberlin Brown Pelzer, Southern California Honorary Co-Chair of the Gas Tax Repeal Campaign and candidate for US Congress (CA-36). “The politicians who supported this massive tax did not listen to the people – we can’t afford higher taxes – we’re going to get this measure qualified so that Californians can finally have their voices heard in November!”
The launch event on Monday will kick off with a media availability with Kimberlin, Mr. Chandi and other organizers at 12:45pm just prior to the drop in gas prices at 1pm until 4pm.
