County legislators should give people break on local gas tax

Posted 2 June 2022 at 8:53 pm


I’m disappointed in the county legislators’ decision to not participate in the sales tax relief on gas. All roads in New York State are in need of repairs and ours is no worse than neighboring counties. Was this a unanimous decision?

We will probably lose out as we can travel to nearby Niagara County and the Reservation for a savings and buy less gas in Orleans County. And once again they say it’s Albany’s fault for the imposed 2% tax cap.

And no thought about the price that our farmers are paying for diesel. This was a poorly thought out plan.
