Pain at the pump
Albany, NY – The New York State Assembly's Republican minority is pushing a measure it says could save New Yorkers about 10 cents per gallon at the pump. The lawmakers are looking at capping the 4% state sales tax on gasoline and establishing a fund to promote the use of alternative fuel sources. Gas prices per gallon in New York State are the highest in the Northeast. More from Capital District Bureau Chief Jessica Bloustein.
