Starting today, the tax on gas in Indiana is increasing to a record high of $0.80 per gallon. The special session to provide Hoosiers with economic relief has been stalled to the end of the month, further delaying much needed relief, while the state sits on a $6B tax surplus.
“Net gas tax collections for the year are already $33 million ahead of revenue projects for the year.
Combined with the $6 billion-plus surplus, we are in an excellent position to suspend the gas tax through November to provide immediate economic relief to families.
Local workers are busy rebuilding our roads, but increased costs of commuting to and from work is hurting families.
Hoosiers likely won’t receive any form of relief until October. Hoosiers need relief now – and that’s why we must suspend the gas tax immediately.”
