What Does $3,100 Mean to the Average Family?

How much will the Democrats’ national energy tax cost?

The Democrats’ national energy tax will confiscate approximately $3,100 per year from hard working families, kill jobs, and lead to more government intrusion.

  • A driver could fill their car’s fuel tank more than 100 times.
  • A family could pay for 15 months worth of disposable diapers.
  • A young professional could pay for roughly 7 years of cell phone service.
  • A Midwest wheat farmer or a Northeast dairy farmer could fill up their tractor’s fuel tank 33 times.
  • A family of four could pay the grocery bill for 5 months.
  • The average Illinois family could pay for more than 3 years of electricity bills.
  • An energy-conscious consumer could buy 822 GE 13-watt energy efficient light bulbs.
