Vermont gas going up
Last Wednesday, Vermont’s House of Representatives gave final approval to a bill that will increase the tax on gas and diesel fuel sold in that state. Gas taxes are expected to go up by 5.9 cents a gallon while diesel fuel taxes will go up 2 cents a gallon. The increase in the gas taxes will take place in May while the increase in diesel fuel taxes will happen in July. Gas prices in Vermont last week ranged around $3.60 a gallon for regular gas.
