Due in part to the war in Ukraine and the United States’ subsequent ban on Russian oil imports, gas prices have spiked across the country.
In an attempt to help lessen the burden on Georgian’s wallets, Gov. Brian Kemp recently suspended the state gas tax, which makes up 29.1 cents per gallon, until the end of May.
After House Bill 304 passed in both chambers of the General Assembly without opposition, drivers are seeing the savings as gas prices now average $4.02 per gallon for regular unleaded gas. The taxes usually collected help fund road building and other transportation projects.
