Indiana Gas Tax Set To Increase In July
Wednesday, June 22, 2022
INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana residents will pay 62 cents per gallon in state taxes on gasoline starting July 1st.
The Indiana Department of Revenue announced the move this week, saying fuel costs are expected to continue to rise in July, “driven largely because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.” The hike is another jump from June’s record-high of 56 cents per gallon.
This increase in the gas tax emerges alongside calls from Indiana Democrats to suspend the tax to aid residents reeling from the worst inflation in 40 years.
Republicans say the gas tax should remain in place to continue funding the state’s highway construction program.
