Last September, Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue suspended the state's gas tax for that month. Some lawmakers called it a ploy, but now some of those same lawmakers are asking the governor to suspend the gas tax again this year to help consumers.
Area drivers usually trek across the state line into Georgia for cheaper gas, but these days they say it's expensive anywhere you go.
And Georgia lawmakers agree. That's why they're asking Governor Perdue to suspend the states gas tax which would save drivers around fifteen cents a gallon.
Most drivers say any kind of break would alleviate the soaring cost of gas even if it doesn't solve the problem. But how soon will it happen? Nobody knows yet because the gas tax break is only a proposal.
