The Tax Hikers Of Minnesota

Residents of Minnesota soon may be paying up to 7.5 cents more a gallon at the gas pump. Republican legislators in the Gopher State see a tax hike of that amount, which was proposed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, as a potentially acceptable compromise for funding transportation projects.

The state’s per-gallon gas tax — currently at 20 cents, according to the American Petroleum Institute — would jump to 27.5 cents, and total federal and state taxes would be 45.5 cents per gallon.
