As gasoline prices in Georgia hit their highest mark in nearly 14 years, Gov. Brian Kemp tweeted Tuesday that his office is working with the general assembly to temporarily suspend the state’s gas tax.
The announcement comes after President Joe Biden said Tuesday morning he was placing a ban on the import of Russian oil in the United States after Russia’s violent invasion of Ukraine.
Kemp said he wants to “lessen the significant impact” higher gas prices are having on families. Prices are up 67 cents from last week’s average.
Georgia collects a state excise tax of 28.7 cents per gallon on gasoline sales, according to a January 2022 report from American Petroleum Institute. Georgians pay 55.95 cents per gallon accounting for all state and federal taxes and fees.
The increases mark the largest price hikes since Hurricane Katrina hit the U.S. Gulf Coast in 2005, devastating the nation’s oil and gas industry, according to CNN.
