Surging gas prices? Blame Rudy Salas and Melissa Hurtado

September 20, 2023

California gas prices skyrocketed at the fastest pace this year, nearing $6 per gallon.

Self-serving politicians Melissa Hurtado and Rudy Salas are to blame. Hurtado voted to support jacking up the gas tax. Salas voted to raise the gas tax, voted to hike gas prices by over 70 cents and skipped votes to halt the gas tax.

“California families pay the highest gas prices in the country and out-of-touch Melissa Hurtado and Rudy Salas like it that way. Hurtado and Salas side with their party’s extreme fringe because according to their radical ideology, the pain is the point.” – NRCC Spokesperson Ben Petersen
