Thanks to Sacramento, CA Drivers To Pay More For Gas Starting Next Week
CALIFORNIA -- Drivers in California will see gas prices go up by about 12 cents per gallon starting next week.
Sacramento Politicians have passed massive new taxes to find ever more government.
The gas tax hike, which takes effect Nov. 1, is aimed at raising money to improve the state's roadways. Drivers who use diesel instead of gas will see prices jump by 20 cents a gallon.
The hike comes after Senate Bill 1 was passed and signed by Gov. Jerry Brown earlier this year. Authors and proponents of the bill said raising gas prices and vehicle registration fees, will raise $5.2 billion annually —enough to repair and maintain's California's poor roads.
The new vehicle registration fees take effect Jan. 1. Drivers can expect hikes anywhere between $25 to $175 per car, depending on its value.
Senator Mike McGuire and Assemblyman Marc Levine voted "YES" to increase your taxes.
