GA Gas Tax

More pain at the pump is on the way for Georgia
residents.
The state's gas tax is set to rise by about 3 cents a gallon on
Sunday when the gas tax automatically increases. It's part of a
complicated formula that kicks in twice each year. In May and
January each year the state gas tax is adjusted pegged to the
average price of gas, and when that price rises, the tax jumps as
well.
There's little state officials can do to stop the hike, aside
from an executive order by the governor to freeze the rate.
Gov. Nathan Deal said it was unlikely he would do so, but said
lawmakers can vote to adjust the formula if they choose.
