How much would you pay for gas if Indiana suspended the fuel tax?
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - Calls are growing louder for Indiana’s leaders to reduce or pause the gasoline tax as Hoosiers pay record-high prices for fuel. So far, Governor Holcomb and Statehouse Republicans have refused to do so.
Hoosiers are paying more than 70 cents in taxes on every gallon of gas, the highest rate in state history. Most of the state fuel tax money is used to pay for road and bridge repairs. The feds take their cut too. But with the state sitting on a $5 billion surplus and Hoosiers struggling to pay for the basics, calls are growing louder to take action on the fuel tax.
