The "hidden gas tax" scheduled to hit California drivers on January 1, 2015 will result in a net reduction of nearly $3 billion in economic output and 18,000 jobs in the first year alone. There is also a nearly one-in-five chance that allowance prices in California's cap-and-trade system could be 300 percent higher than expected, meaning economic losses could skyrocket to $10.8 billion and 66,000 jobs in 2015. Low-income Californians would be hit doubly hard by the "hidden gas tax" because many of these individuals work in the service industries where job losses will be most severe.
