This story is sure to ruffle a few feathers – especially given the out of control gas prices lately.

It looks like the DNC and perhaps the RNC will get a pass on paying gas taxes when they each host their conventions in the next few months.

“The DNC is not government. The RNC is not government,” Faatz added. “They are political parties and they are putting on a huge party, and that is not providing services to each and every citizen each day.”

UPDATE: Teresa McFarland, a spokeswoman for the Minneapolis-St. Paul host committee, said they’re getting their gas at the pump.

“We’re not getting a tax break on fuel,” she said. “That’s not the set-up at this end.”
