Summer is just around the corner and so is that impending gas tax in California!
We hope you didn’t forget, because come July 1, you’re looking at a 5.6 cent increase per gallon.
The gas tax comes in response to SB-1, which was signed into law by former Governor Jerry Brown to fix aging roadways and infrastructure.
Officials said the tax is projected to generate more than $50 billion over the next 10 years.
An attempt to repeal the bill had failed.
Gas had already gone up 12 cents back in 2017 under a deal also made by then Governor Brown.
