More pain at the pump is on the way for Georgia
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
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.

    Really?????....As if gas is not high enough already....Georgia should be in great financial shape with the high state taxes we pay each pay check and purchases.......And now hike the price of gas....Someone has to do something with the economic backfall......America is going backwards on a fast track.........Government promises never pan out......America will fall if we dont get someone to lead this country like it needs to be led....
