Georgia Governor Continues to Suspend Georgia's Gas Tax Until Mid-August


July 05, 2022

ATLANTA, GEORGIA - A news story on newstimes.com states that the Georgia's governor is extending the state's fuel tax suspension through mid-August.*

Governor Brian Kemp stated last Friday that he signed an executive order that extends the state's gas tax for a second time. The executive order also stops the state sales tax on train fuel.

Governor Kemp had signed the gas tax law back in March. The bill passed with substantial bipartisan support. The original time limit suspended Georgia's state gas tax until May 31. However, the Governor expanded the gas tax suspension through Jul 14, 2022. Under Georgia law, Governor Kemp may suspend taxes by executive order when state lawmakers endorse the executive action at the next meeting. Governor Kemp reduced gas taxes back in 2021 during a pipeline shutdown.

According to the Governor, he is committed to fighting off the economic burden that Georgians are facing due to catastrophic policies passed by Washington politicians. Gas prices rose dramatically worldwide when Russian President Vladimir Putin started placing troops on Ukraine's border. 

Georgia's gasoline price includes the 18.4 cents per gallon federal tax and the state's tax of 29.1 cents per gallon. Several cities and counties also charge gas taxes. The Federal diesel fuel tax is 24.4 cents per gallon, and Georgia's diesel tax is 32.6 cents per gallon. 

Democrat Stacey Abrams, who will be challenging Kemp in the next Georgia Governor's race, stated that Governor Kemp should commit to halting the state's gas tax until the end of the year.
