Under Mr. Newsom's proposal, drivers would receive $400 on debit cards per car to ease the pain at the pump.
In addition, the proposal would cover the cost of bus or train fares for three months to assist residents who do not have access to a vehicle.
The proposal would give each household a maximum of two debit cards worth $800.
The first payments might begin as early as July. Every year, California drivers pay about $300 in gas taxes.
Keep this in mind:
California's average gas price stands at $5.90 a gallon, two dollars above the national average, per AAA.
