YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN and AP) – Ohio’s new gas tax goes into effect Monday.
Drivers will see the gasoline tax increase by 10.5 cents. The diesel tax will increase by 19 cents.
Republican Gov. Mike DeWine signed a transportation budget in April to increase Ohio’s tax on gas by 10.5 cents a gallon and the tax on diesel fuel by 19 cents beginning July 1.
The bill was aimed at providing money to maintain deteriorating roads and bridges. Ohioans will now pay a state tax rate of 38.5 cents per gallon on gas and 47 cents a gallon on diesel fuel.
