Georgia temporarily cancels fuel tax

July 4, 20220

Georgia is temporarily extending the elimination of the state fuel tax.

Gov. Brian Kemp signed an executive order suspending the fuel tax until mid-August. Earlier, a law was signed, which was supported by both parties.

According to him, the effect of the tax on gas in the state was canceled until May 31.

At the end of May, the abolition of the tax was extended until July 14. The reason for the extension was the high price of gasoline.

The price of gas has skyrocketed around the world since Russian President Vladimir Putin started the war in Ukraine.

President Biden called for a three-month suspension of federal taxes on gasoline and diesel fuel, though the proposal has been questioned by many lawmakers.

“I am determined to fight to ease the economic burden on the hardworking people of Georgia due to the disastrous policies of Washington politicians,” Kemp said in a press release.

Gasoline prices in Georgia include a federal tax of 18.4 cents per gallon and a state tax of 29.1 cents per gallon.

Federal taxes on diesel are 24.4 cents per gallon, and in Georgia the tax on diesel is 32.6 cents per gallon.
