MK Ghilon: Gasoline Tax Misplaced

Member of Knesset Ilan Ghilon (Meretz-New Left Movement) protested price hikes during a hearing Tuesday morning by the Knesset State Control Committee into the rising price of gasoline, which is under state control and taxed by the state.

Ghilon said, "I'm for taxes. The problem is when they place the tax on the middle class. They should tax 4 x 4 vehicles and not gasoline."
