    President Biden calls on Congress to suspend the gas tax — Here’s what that means for prices at the pump.
    CNBC (Moderate Left) • Factual Grade 77% • 4 min read

    Biden’s plan asks Congress to suspend the federal tax on gasoline and diesel fuel for three months. The federal tax is 18 cents per gallon of regular gasoline and 24 cents per gallon for diesel. The president is also asking states to suspend their gas taxes, or find other ways to provide relief. It’s unclear whether Biden has congressional support.
    ...
    “If this bill is signed and enacted — becomes effective — it will help motorists,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy. But he added that the extent to which any relief is felt will depend on wholesale prices remaining stable. He pointed to New York. The state suspended its gas tax, but at a time when wholesale fuel prices were rising. Ultimately, consumers didn’t see much of an impact.
    ...
    More than half of the cost per gallon of gasoline is based on the underlying price of oil, which is set on a global basis. [Harvard professor Jason Furman] said a suspension would have little impact on consumers while leading to billions of dollars for oil companies.

Should the US eliminate its stockpile of landmines?

299 votes, 29 comments

Context: President Biden restricts military use of landmines and begins reducing stockpile.

HIGHLIGHTED COMMENTS

No - It's a weapon. Land mines don't plant themselves. If you want to restrict how we use them then fine but there's no way to know when we might need to use them as a defensive capability in a conventional war again. Ukraine is an excellent tactical example of the defensive use of mines.


Yes - Landmines have little use for the United States. We have never had a...
