Local Gas Station Owners Oppose Increasing Gas Tax


Local gas station owners say Illinois lawmakers should resist any effort to raise motor fuel taxes to pay for infrastructure improvements.

 

The Illinois Petroleum Marketers Association and local station owners say such a tax hike would hurt drivers who are already struggling with the high price of gas… and would be damaging to small businesses.

 

A coalition of business and labor groups recently recommended the tax hike as part of a package of long-range funding for road and bridge repairs.

 

But the gas station group says the state should simply stop diverting Road Fund money for other purposes and spend it directly on infrastructure.
