Georgians already paying record high prices at the pump are about to get hit again in the pocketbook.
The state’s gasoline tax is set to rise. Georgia officials on Monday will post the new rate that will take effect on July 1st, the start of the fiscal year.
It will be based on the average price of gasoline in the state, which has been soaring.
In Georgia, the price of every gallon of gasoline includes 18.5 cents in state taxes, 18.4 cents in federal taxes and a local tax that varies from county to county.
Automaticatic tax increases should be illegal.
If the GOP were really committed to their allegedly Republican principles they would change this.
But I suspect they won’t.
