Gas Stations Sue Over Requirement To Post Signs About State’s Gas Tax Freeze

Fuel retailers in Illinois are suing the state over a requirement forcing them to display signs advertising a freeze on the state’s gas tax.  The Illinois Fuel & Retail Association filed the lawsuit on behalf of gas station owners.  The suit claims the requirement violates their freedom of speech and is unconstitutional.  The complaint stems from a measure pushed through the state General Assembly this spring that requires gas stations to post a notice informing drivers of a gas tax freeze for the second half of this year.
