If They Got to $0.21, It Would Cause Few Problems

The Georgia House is still negotiating with itself over HB170. The latest proposal is to reduce the excise tax to 21¢ per gallon of gas. If they did that, I don’t think there’d be many howls of protest. It would, essentially, be at the rate of current conversion from the sales tax to the excise tax. At most it would be a 2¢ increase per gallon.
