Increase in Georgia Gas Prices
Gas prices have gone up in the Peach State and it's not because of the Holiday Weekend.
The increase in prices is going towards maintaining the state's roads and bridges. A law passed by the General Assembly goes into effect Wednesday and sets the gas tax at 26 cents per gallon. The previous tax per gallon was only 19.5 cents.
The increased tax is set to raise $900 million to help maintain Georgia roads and bridges.
