New Jersey to hike jet fuel

U.S. state New Jersey has proposed a tax increase on jet fuel to fund non-aviation public works. The legality of the move has been challenged by US airlines and others since this tax increase hikes the price of jet fuel by 18 times its current level.
“This stunningly shortsighted tax hike will hurt N.J., putting jobs in jeopardy and limiting air service, which will strain the state’s already struggling economy,” said A4A spokeswoman Penny Kozakos. “The potential unintended and undesirable consequences are significant for New Jersey families and businesses who rely on affordable and convenient cargo and passenger air transportation.”
