Ford lashed out at the Liberals and NDP stating that under them gas prices would only increase. Currently, drivers pay 14.7 cents per litre of gasoline in provincial tax and 14.3 cents on diesel.
Drivers "are frustrated at being gouged at the gas pumps", he said.
Cap and trade brought in about $2 billion in revenue a year ago, and the gas tax brought in about $2.7 billion.
NDP Leader Andrea Horwath has promised to bring "stability" to gas prices by regulating how often stations can raise prices, a tactic that has been tried in some other provinces.
Neither Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne nor NDP leader Andrea Horwath would commit to forming a coalition government if the Progressive Conservatives win a minority in the upcoming Ontario election.
He also says he would scrap the province's cap-and-trade system, which puts a price on carbon and has added 4.3 cents a litre to the price of gasoline. "They'll go out and shop, stimulate the economy".
When asked whether he supports such programs, Ford said he will resort to the following means to promote business in Ontario - the fight against excessive bureaucracy, the reduction of tariffs for the electric power and attempts to eliminate the tax on emissions set by the Federal government.
Spokeswoman Drew Davidson said the Liberals are the only party to present a clear and achievable plan for child care.
"We made a decision to publicly fund child care for preschoolers, rather than adopt an income bracket model, because we believe all families in Ontario deserve access to child care. We will balance the budget in our term", he said. "Fed up with the price of gas as it keeps going up and with it the price of goods and services with no end or relief in sight", said Ford.
The Liberals said Ford's pledge to cancel the cap-and-trade program, which puts limits on how much companies can pollute the air, is bad for the environment.
Horwath says that at just under a month until Ontarians hit the polls, it's too early to make any definitive decisions.
