Texas House Democrats Call For Gas Holiday

Imagine a break from high gas prices. That's exactly what Texas House Democrats are calling for.

Thursday, they urged Governor Rick Perry to add a "gas tax holiday" to the agenda for this special session. The state collects $0.20 per gallon of gasoline. Democrats are proposing for a 90-day suspension of that gas tax.

Meanwhile, gas prices in Lubbock are averaging $2.77 per gallon of unleaded fuel. NewsChannel 11 also found prices as low as $2.74 and as high as $2.89 per gallon.
