NY gas tax break comes to an end
State gas taxes worth $0.16 per gallon resumed on Sunday after a six-month suspension.
That could see that average price continue to rise – but Governor Kathy Hochul says resuming the tax is important.
She says it brings in revenue that the state needs to maintain the roads.
State Senator Dan Stec says he wants to resume the tax suspension – calling the legislature tone deaf for calling a special session to vote on pay raises, and not relief at the pumps.
