Tax Break on Gas?

State Lawmakers are working on a plan to help you save at the pump... but it won't be much.

Their proposal would suspend the state's six-percent sales tax on gas whenever a gallon costs more than two-dollars and thirty cents.

You would still have to pay about 33 cents per gallon in state and federal gas taxes but even supporters of the plan admit your savings would only be between seven-and twenty dollars a year.

Opponents of the plan say such a small savings for drivers isn't worth the budget cuts.

The state would have to find ways to cover the lost revenue.
