Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

Midwest Digest, June 22, 2021

Max Armstrong talks about the federal gas tax, crop conditions, the stealing of steering wheels for air bags and a long-time radio broadcaster.

The federal gas tax hasn't changed in more than 20 years. Some senators want to index it to support inflation.

Only Ohio, Michigan and Missouri saw improved crop conditions in the last week. Several saw declines.

There's apparently a black market for a Chevy Malibu steering wheel for the air bags.

WSGW radio celebrated 50 years ago this week that a broadcaster joined the air.
