What Does the Gas Tax Increase Mean for Southern Ohio?

Effective July 1, 2019, Ohio’s new gas tax increase will go into effect.  The gasoline tax will increase by 10.5 cents per gallon while the tax on diesel will increase 19 cents per gallon.   It is estimated that for a driver who gets 25 mpg and drives 15,000 miles per year the additional cost will be approximately $63 per year. 

Overall the new gas and diesel revenue is estimated to provide an additional $865 million per year which will be split 55/45 between state and local government.
