Decision on pause on federal gasoline tax could come at end-week

US President Joe Biden said on Monday that they could decide whether to pause the federal tax by the end of the week, as reported by Reuters.

“I hope I have a decision based on data I am looking for by the end of the week,” Biden told reporters and added that he thought it was very likely for Ukraine to become a member of the European Union.
