Governor Gavin Newsom is trying to grab every headline he can right now.
In the process, he is proving he is a complete idiot.
His latest PR trick would actually do the complete opposite of what he is trying to achieve.
Newsom posted his brilliance on Twitter...
NEW: I'm calling for a Special Session to address the greed of oil companies. Gas prices are too high. Time to enact a windfall profits tax directly on oil companies that are ripping you off at the pump.

What happens when you add another tax to gasoline?
That gets passed down to the consumer.
Only an economically illiterate Democrat would think enacting yet another state tax on petroleum companies will bring about a decrease in gas prices LOL. You couldn't make up this level of stupid if you tried.

Other people were wondering why California always has the highest gasoline prices...
Gas prices are $3 less per gallon in Texas. I guess Texas uses different oil companies.

Really strange how oil companies only get really greedy when they cross the California border. pic.twitter.com/EjAlr4LVyK

If Newsom has his way, they are going to go even higher, so let him have his session and pass his tax.
California elected him, then kept him during the recall election... so they deserve to suffer through his stupidity.
