WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Joe Biden’s request that Congress pass a three-month suspension of the federal gasoline tax “is dead on arrival,” U.S. Senator John Thune, the second-ranking Republican in the Senate, said on Wednesday.

“What the administration, of course, is coming up with is yet another gimmick, another Band-Aid and something they know is dead on arrival up here in Congress,” Thune said.
