Possible Hike at the Gas Pump

  • Written by Tony Hart

(1/19/13) A report due to be released next week by the Transportation Finance and Policy Commission will recommend an increase in the Wisconsin fuel tax.

A five-cent per gallon adjustment in the gas tax is one suggestion. Others include a one-cent vehicle miles traveled fee, or a 55 dollar increase in the registration fee, eliminating the sales tax exemption on trade-ins or a 20-dollar increase in the license renewal fee. Although Governor Scott Walker has said transportation infrastructure is one of his priorities, it isn't clear if any of the recommendations will get his support, or a vote in the Legislature.
