SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – Starting Wednesday, July 1, California’s gas tax is going to be a little pricer.

The gas tax is now up a little more than 3 cents, bringing the total to over 50 cents a gallon.

The tax is the result of Senate Bill 1, which passed in 2017.

The gas tax is projected to bring in about $7 billion to pay for maintenance and repairs.
