A group of five governors – including Tony Evers – is urging Congress to suspend the federal gas tax for the rest of the year. W-M-T-V reports Evers and the others sent a letter to leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives. The governor’s office says the Gas Prices Relief Act would help Americans struggling with pump prices of around four dollars a gallon. Suspending the federal tax would knock the per-gallon price down by 18-point-four cents. The Wisconsin pump price has jumped by 63 cents since last month.
