Schenectady County to cap gas tax at $2 per gallon
Drivers in Schenectady County should soon notice a little bit of difference in what they’re paying at the gas pump.
According to the new legislation, consumers will only pay the tax on the first $2 per gallon. This means if a gallon of gas costs $4, you would save 8¢ a gallon.
The changes go into effect June 1 and will stay in place through next February.
The state’s suspension of the gas tax, which was approved in the budget, will also begin on June 1.
