Given the fact that we're in hurricane season and we don't know what to expect, government can be helpful before the next crisis. As we know when refinery capacity is limited due to natural disasters like Harvey, we pay at the pump. Last week gas prices jumped 20-30 cents a gallon.

Now with Irma bearing down and Texas still in recovery it's time to "pause" the gas tax. How bout a temporary stay of the 23 cent hike until we're out of the danger window? #pausethegastax. Think any legislator has the guts to bring it up?
