The Governor’s idea includes giving everyone who has a car registered with the state $400 debit cards for up to two vehicles. For those who don’t, newsom wants the state to pay for their bus or train fare for three months. According to AAA, CDalifornia’s average gas prices have hit a new state record at $5.88 per gallon, which is more than $2 higher than it was a year ago.
