Gas Tax Going Up Next Week In Missouri

(Jefferson City) While President Joe Biden waits to see if Congress will answer his call to suspend the federal gasoline tax, Missouri’s gas tax is set to go up next week.

A new law took effect last year in which the state’s gas tax will gradually rise, in order to build and maintain roads and bridges throughout the state.

Next Friday, July First, Missouri’s gas tax will rise by two-and-a-half cents per gallon.

Several lawmakers have called for the tax to be suspended as gas prices rise across Missouri and the rest of the country.
