Ohio 10.5-cent gas tax

Ohio gas tax

On July 1, our gas tax will increase by 10.5 cents per gallon. That means each of us will pay a total of 38.5 cents more per gallon. Diesel fuel will go up to 47 cents per gallon. That’s the bad news.

Now, here is the good news. The tax – which was a compromise between the governor and the state’s Republicans – will pay for road projects across the state as well as a $70 million increase in public transportation spending.

In my mind, this tax will help us fix those roads and bridges we have been complaining about.
