Gas Extraction Tax Will Fall To Consumer

Letter to the EditorMay 26, 2019

Editor: To all those who think a natural gas extraction tax is a good idea, keep in mind it’s the consumer that will pay 100 percent of that tax. Natural gas is the future of power generation in Pennsylvania, so, it will be felt by all in higher power bills as well as those who heat and cook with natural gas, and don’t forget industries and businesses like restaurants. It is Pennsylvania citizens who will pay the tax and just like that gasoline tax, the money will be misspent. Kenneth James BLAKESLEE
