John McCain Repeats His Request for A Gas Tax Holiday

June 12, 2008

Republican presumptive nominee John McCain repeated his request for a gas tax holiday on Wednesday.

McCain spent the day campaigning in Pennsylvania. In his speeches he said that oil companies and the government should give the average American a break amidst increasingly high energy costs.

Critics say cutting the price will only increase demand, which would lead to high gas prices once again.

Barack Obama has called the idea a "gimmick".
