Gas Tax Hike May Be Coming In Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS (CBS) — Gas prices have been skyrocketing across the country, but for some people in Indiana, they soon could be even higher thanks to a tax hike.

Right now, the fuel tax in Indiana is 18 cents per gallon. But some state officials say Indiana has lost millions of dollars in gas tax revenue in the past few years.

They say a tax hike is the only way for the state to keep up its roads.

The last gas tax increase in Indiana was in 2002.

By contrast, in Illinois the gas tax is more than twice as much as in Indiana, at 39 cents per gallon.

    “By contrast, in Illinois the gas tax is more than twice as much as in Illinois, at 39 cents per gallon.”

    Compared to tax-raping we get in IL, Indiana sounds like a bargain. Thnx democrats!!!

    Illinois is a leader in this country! We lead in taxes, corruption, hiding spots for cowardly politicians from other states, and stupid politicians of our own…# 1 baby!

    HA HA The Indiana GOP is liking what we have here in Illinois and knows that more revenue coming in means keeping the poor fed and the streets plowed. I am all for raising taxes.

    • Oh please!

      You are a fool! Do you even vote??

        Of course I vote in every election, straight Democrat and Yes for all school referendums. I even attend school board meetings in support of the referendums. Collectively, the government can put larger sums of money to better use than individuals can just spending it willy-nilly.
