Connecticut’s Overall Affordability is About to Get Worse

Posted on June 15, 2022

Connecticut’s overall affordability seems to get worse by the minute. For the trucking companies, farmers, and everyone in between who rely on diesel fuel to get from point A to point B, or purchases items brought to or through our state on a truck, it’s only going to get worse.

That’s because on July 1st, diesel prices are expected to increase another 9.1 cents per gallon. Combine that with a looming 17.5 cents per mile truck tax set to go into effect on January 1, 2023 and you have companies and families who are already finding it difficult to stay afloat facing more financial uncertainty in the upcoming months.

The good news is that there is something we can do about it. House and Senate Republicans have offered a plan that would provide significant tax relief not just at the pump, but on energy costs, groceries, and overall income. This much needed relief is possible due to the windfall in additional revenue the state has collected as a result of inflation.

We are asking our colleagues to call a special session and vote on our proposal to bring much needed tax relief to the residents of this state.
