Find another way of funding the HTF that doesn't rely upon bleeding more gas money from people.

People drive less and buy more fuel efficient vehicles because the price of gas is so fucking high. Lower the price and people will drive more because the amount they spend on gas every month won't be the same as their rent.

Basic Economics 101. Not surprising it goes right over their heads.

The problem is that if they don't complain about this and try to shut it down what's to stop cable companies from doing to same thing and stop paying billions a year in retransmission fees? The TV industry makes a shitload of money from cable TV providers. They certainly do not want to see that revenue stream dry up.

Unlikely to happen, despite them saying it's something they might do. There are millions of people that use antennas to watch broadcast TV. Killing the OTA feeds would be cutting off their noses to spite their faces, especially if they think doing so is going to drive people to start paying for cable TV.
