KOMO: Washington Congresswoman Kim Schrier proposing legislation to stop gas price gouging

May 6, 2022 – OLYMPIA, Wash. – Congresswoman Kim Schrier has partnered with a California congresswoman on a bill they say can stop price gouging at the gas pump.

Schrier (WA-08) represents five counties in western Washington, including parts of King, Kittitas and Pierce counties.

A release from her office said she and California representative Katie Porter (CA-45) are proposing the Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Prevention Act (CFPGPA). The bill would implement a temporary federal gas tax holiday through the end of the year.

This comes during a surge in price at the pump over the past several months.
