Maryland Gas Tax Set To Expire Saturday Night

Prices of gas and diesel will go up $0.36 per gallon.

Annapolis, Md. (NS) – The Maryland gas tax holiday to help compensate for rising prices at the pump is set to expire Saturday night.

On March 18, Governor Larry Hogan signed legislation to suspend the state tax on gas and diesel for 30 days as prices surpassed $4 a gallon.

This week, legislators did not extend the holiday.

Beginning midnight on Sunday, Maryland’s $0.36 per gallon tax will be added back on to the price of gas and diesel.

Comptroller Peter Franchot is encouraging all motorists to top off their tanks today and tomorrow before Saturday evening when there is expected to be a rush on gas stations before the tax holiday ends.
