Kenney orders gasoline suppliers to pass gas tax savings on to consumers

Calgary Herald: 'Premier Jason Kenney is promising to hold gas companies accountable to pass the lifted provincial fuel tax on to Albertans at the pump.


'He said in a press conference on Wednesday that the province will be benchmarking the cost of gas in Alberta and using it as a means of comparison to other jurisdictions in Canada.


'“We will be watching that like a hawk,” said the premier. “We sent a clear message to gas retailers that we won’t accept any games being played with this. If they don’t pass on these tax savings, if they try to pocket a portion of that, we will be prepared to resort to using legal tools to protect consumers and we are open to potentially bringing in regulatory power to compel retailers to pass on that savings.”'
