The latest pitch from Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alez Lasry would save drivers a couple of cents per-gallon.
Lasry yesterday suggested a six-month suspension of the federal gas tax. The federal tax is just over 18 cents-per-gallon, which Lasry says would save people about three dollars per-fill-up. Lasry, who is trailing in the Democratic polls, is the son of billionaire Milwaukee Bucks owner Marc Lasry. The federal gas tax is largely sent back to the state to pay for work on highways and other transportation projects.
