Oil companies are ripping you off. Their record profits are coming at your expense at the pump.

I’m calling for a NEW windfall tax exclusively on oil companies. If they won't lower their prices we will do it for them.

The $$ will go directly back to you.

Governor @GavinNewsom is right: greedy oil companies are fleecing Californians. While families struggle to pay at the pump, Big Oil is reaping record profits. My bill to hold these corporations accountable passed the House, but the Senate won't act. I'm proud California will.

California gas sales taxes are ripping us off. The “California blend” is ripping us off. You are ripping us off. You could’ve ended this months ago. You’re too busy peacocking with Ron DeSantis and pretending you’re not running for President in 2024.
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
Because oil companies wouldn't just pass the cost of those windfall taxes onto consumers? Also, why weren't they ripping us off 3 years ago under Biden's predecessor?
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
The state of California makes more money per gallon at the pump than the gas station or the oil company.
 
Do you even economics 101? By implementing a windfall tax you're only going to prompt energy companies to produce less and raise prices. You will not tax more money out of them and taxpayers will end up subsidizing the companies just to keep them runnning.
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
oil companies aren't ripping us off, state emissions regulations, the highest gas tax in the country, and required oil 'blends' are what makes gas in CA so $$$. you have the power to fix a lot of this. Stop finger pointing.
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
From the guy with the highest gas tax in the nation. Sure buddy
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
You seem to "forget" the extra gas tax you have put on us... BTW, what will happen to the extra tax money that will be collected from the oil companies? Where will that be going? I'm sure not back into our pockets🤔🤡🤬
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
So their only ripping off Californians? There is no logic here. Evrryone else gas prices go down except for us Californians. He will say anything at this point. What about that gas price committee they formed. Literally crickets.
 
This is very likely to increase prices. The last thing we need is government action trying to fiddle with the markets. Let the volatility stabilize and find their equilibrium naturally. The more you change the law more undesirable or unpredictable reactions you create.
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
You really expect us to believe that the oil companies are just going after Calif??? You are the worst governor and now you think you can run for president😂😂😂Instead of picking fights with other governors you should spend time working on the many problems in Calif
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
Appreciate you Governor Newsom. Democrats are problem solvers. Republicans just whine constantly and do absolutely nothing to make things better.
 
WATCH: Gavin Newsom makes a fool of himself explaining oil prices to Californians:
 
"Prices at the pump are soaring. Let's add more tax to the cost of your gasoline, California!"
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
No oil companies are not ripping us off YOU ARE. They are just charging what they have to because of the price per barrel. Biden used up our reserve. Even sent it to other countries. You had your chance to lower our costs when Kiley asked you to suspend the gas tax. You didn’t!
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
I don’t see how that will lower prices, probably the opposite
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
that will definitely help lower costs and encourage oil companies to invest here in technologies to drive costs lower. Buy buy an EV is the answer right? Avg cost of $67k--oh but you can't charge it during the day due to our power grid sucking. Brilliant!
 
Gov Newsom kicking ass and taking names! Big oil blaming Pres. Biden and the Democrats…The gig is up! Thank You Gov. Newsom for having Californian’s backs! F*ck Big oil.

You know this makes no sense. People: THINK‼️
 
Newsom, you and your policies are destroying California and making it harder for the working families in California to survive this nonsense. Stop your nonsense!🤬 You and your super majority could have fixed this over 200 days ago but stopping the #GasTax and blend fuels.
 
A lot of California oil industry news today.

Earlier today a referendum to repeal @SenGonzalez33's law banning oil drilling within 3200ft of homes, schools, hospitals qualified for circulation.

Now the governor floats a new policy to take an axe to the industry's profits.
 
Fossil fuels are bad and the state needs to do everything in its power to shut down production and phase out products like gas powered vehicles and leaf blowers and appliances, but also, we need to make it easier for consumers to purchase gasoline. What a fucking clown.
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
California voters approved the gas tax and later voted against repealing it. Thank you Governor for doing all you can to stop price gouging.
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
What about the gas tax you deceived us with on the ballot AND refused to veto?
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
THANK you, Governor. Nobody ever seems to hold those damned oil companies accountable, though a friend of mine in Alaska receives a check for reparations for the Exxon Valdez spill years ago - so that's one place the responsibility landed, rightly, on them.
 
In reply to @CASOSVote
Like this where the same guy that had the opportunity to postpone a gas tax hike & provide a 6 month moratorium on gas taxes is now blaming the oil industry for the increases. His disinformation campaign is misleading & running at full speed. Start there. twitter.com/GavinNewsom/st…
 
Now this is who I would classify as a Best Governor.
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
No you punk, YOU and your cronies are ripping us off! We pay DOLLARS MORE PER GALLON than the rest of the country because of all the epic sh:t you’ve all done here! Stop lying! pic.twitter.com/pm7pTQhZdE
 
Lol, lmao, $10 gas in LA when
 
He’s a maniac , always doing stupid crap that just makes things worse and raises costs ..
 
Why are the oil companies ripping us off now while Biden is president but they weren’t when Trump was president?
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
Almost cannot afford to drive to work! Please and thank you!

Californians are so lucky to have @GavinNewsom. I wish I still lived there.🥲
 
Yes @GavinNewsom! ♥️ The Gavernor™️ is taking out the trash! 🗑️🛢️🔥
 
面对加州这两周油价的无厘头暴涨,加州州长纽森宣布将对故意哄抬油价的企业征收惩罚性关税。

在国际油价持续下跌的背景下,加州州内的四个最大炼化厂同时减产,理由是一个遭遇“故障”,另外三个正好又在“维护”,导致加州油价从月初的$5左右暴涨到今天的$6.29。 pic.twitter.com/6Qn1ZGnJpm

The Best Governor Ever, You go Governor Newsom 😘👏👏👏
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
Pandering idiot! You think its oil companies are the cause of California gas prices above $6/gal; then why are gas prices in Florida $3.33/gal, Texas $3.11/gal, New York City $3.59/gal? Its because California requires special fuel to meet erroneous environmental metrics.
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
Taxes & fees account for almost 60% of the price of a gallon of gas. As gas prices go up, the government’s take increases. ROLL BACK THE GAS TAX!
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
Why are they just rippling off Californians? Seems like an odd rip-off scheme.
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
Oh I'm sure it has nothing to do with all the extra taxes tacked on. Sit down... you've really fd California. pic.twitter.com/HCOFy4FhMo
 
This mother fucker really wants 8 dollar gas by next month

I support you Governor #GavinNewsome but I totally disagree with you about this.

No, YOU are ripping us off.
 
This started playing with the volume off and I thought it was an ad for a Los Angeles billboard lawyer.

@GavinNewsom Addressing skyrocketing gas prices in the state of California.
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
What if they take the tax, then raise prices to absorb new tax? Now you are getn more tax and we, again are the ones to pay. I dunno
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
No one believes you. It’s 2$ a gallon less everywhere. We have the highest gas tax in the country while you float about record surpluses. It sounds like you are the gouger. Wear it.

See what i'm talmbout? Come to Death Row!
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
YOU are ripping people off with your high taxes and gas prices. It’s all YOU
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
California adds $2 per gallon because of taxes and regulation fees. Stop over regulating/taxing and gas will be cheaper.
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
Gavin Newsom wants to tax oil companies even more. Is short term thinking is that oil companies will simply reduce their prices. Business doesn’t work that way. You have to meet the projected income after tax, so the only way to do that then is to charge higher prices.
 
Yeah - that’s why gas prices are high in CA….
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
Why is the solution to everything in California seem to be to just add or raise taxes? All that money, yet its infrastructure is still sh*t.
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
We, the people know that Oil Companies are price gouging. What can people do Governor Newsom? Stop purchasing Gasoline? You are the governor, your party is in the white house, it controls the Congress. You should be doing something. @GovCalifornia

This will only raise gas prices!

Drain your hair and solve the oil issue
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
What about the highest gas taxes in the nation that you and the Dem forced upon us?
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
Are you talking about California or Texas today today? What exactly does “calling for” actually mean? How will the $$ come back to the consumers? How about some details. Also, why do we have to pay a $8.25 certificate fee for smog when the data is transferred electronically?

In reply to @GavinNewsom
So you don't even know how much your state taxes gas at the pump as it is?
 
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
Says the fool who raised our gas tax in July and said no to suspend gas tax for a few mo the amidst the crisis. You’re not fooling anyone with your lies
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
Moronic. The state is the one making the most per gallon in California. Why don’t YOU lower the CA gas tax ?????
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
That’s nice twisting of the truth but why don’t you tell people the 15,000 real honest to God truth instead of gaslighting them
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
Doesn’t Ca have the highest gas taxes already? You suck
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
You can tell how oil companies vote by how high gas prices are before midterms. It's not a coincidence
 
In reply to @GavinNewsom
Or better yet get an electric car.
