No Albuquerque Gas Tax!

When gas prices go up, everything gets more expensive for Albuquerque families.

Sign the petition against City Councilor Isaac Benton’s brand new tax on local motorists – a 2-cent per gallon gas tax.

This is a new city tax that will be added on top of the 35.4 cents per gallon you already pay in taxes, not to mention the 10 cent per gallon increase the state legislature may try to pass again in the special session.

If these taxes pass, you'll be paying more than $7 in taxes alone every time you fill up your tank.

Sign the petition and tell the Albuquerque City Council to reject this tax increase and support taxpayers — not continue the out-of-control spending.

Sign the Petition:
No ABQ Gas Tax!

Dear City Councilors and Mayor: 

As residents of Albuquerque, we already have the heaviest tax burden of any city in New Mexico. Instead of constantly reaching for our pocket books, you need to prioritize your budget and get city government spending under control.

Vote NO on the Albuquerque gas tax! 

Sincerely,

Thank you! Your submission has been received!

Local tax burdens are out of control! We CAN stop this tax increase, but citizens need to tell the City Council and Mayor that they are taxed enough already!

Here are some other facts about the tax increase:

  • Residents of Albuquerque already face the heaviest tax burdens as a percentage of income of any city in New Mexico, even Santa Fe. 
  • A report from the Brookings Institution stated high prices at the pump "do affect both consumers and the economy adversely, and they are especially harmful to lower- and moderate-income households."
  • This tax will not be dedicated to road construction or needed river crossings, but to “rehabilitate transportation systems” including the despised Albuquerque Rapid Transit system and the City’s bus system.
