West Virginia Raises Fuel Taxes
(July 6, 2017) - As of July 1, 2017, fuel taxes in the state of West Virginia have officially been increased by 2.5 cents a gallon. The legislation affects both gasoline and diesel fuel taxes and is structured to increase another 1 cent after January 1, 2018.
West Virginia is only one of seven other states across the country – Indiana, Montana, Tennessee, West Virginia, South Carolina, California, and Maryland – with increased fuel taxes coming down the pipe. The increases are hoping to help fund repairs to the nation’s ailing infrastructure, and are arriving while gas prices are at some of their lowest in recent memory.
