Gas Tax Suspended For 30 Days In Maryland

Maryland governor signs gas tax suspension bill into effect

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has immediately put a 30-day suspension of the state’s gas tax into effect. Hogan signed legislation Friday, shortly after final approval by state lawmakers. Hogan described it as a bipartisan effort to provide some relief to Marylanders because of rising gas prices.

The law applies to the state’s 36-cents a gallon tax for gasoline. A driver of a vehicle with a 12 gallon tank will save about $4.32 a fill-up.

Hogan has submitted a supplemental budget to fund the gas tax suspension, which is expected to cost nearly $100 million.
