Alberta to extend gas tax cut as electricity rebate expected to reach customers in July
Calgary Herald: 'Alberta will extend its gas tax relief for at least another three months, Premier Jason Kenney announced Wednesday.
'Alberta will not collect its standard 13 cents per litre tax at fuel pumps until at least September, as crude oil prices remain high amid soaring demand and Russia’s continued invasion of Ukraine. Kenney first introduced the relief measure in April and committed to reviewing the program every quarter.
'“We’re helping Albertans save money through the fuel tax relief program at a time of need. While fuel prices have continued to increase nationwide, Albertans still pay considerably less than their provincial neighbours. We’re pleased to extend this important relief measure until the end of September,” Kenney said in a news release.'
