‘Shameful’: California College Republicans protest state gas taxes
Members of the California College Republicans recently attended a protest in opposition to the state’s gas tax hike.
At the protest, volunteers obtained signatures for the Taxpayer Protection Act.
STOP THE TAX HIKES, @GavinNewsom! Today the California gas tax went up 5.6%. Unacceptable. Sign the Taxpayer Protection Act today to stop these radical and unfair taxes. #GasTaxRevolt pic.twitter.com/JDvrsyaFJ3

California's gas tax increased from $0.51 to $.54 per gallon effective July 1.
Tax hikes are “shameful,” a CCR spokesperson told Campus Reform.
Yet, Californians are not the only ones being affected by record-high gas prices. Campus Reform has previously reported on rising gas prices nationwide
In North Carolina, for example, Southwestern Community College (SCC) announced that it would operate remotely one day a week in order to combat record-high inflation.
In Massachusetts, a gas station located near Amherst College, the University of Massachusetts - Amherst, and Hampshire College, shuttered its doors as high gas prices have resulted in decreased gas sales.
Campus Reform reached out to Reform California for comment. This article will be updated accordingly.
