We attended the last Lake County Commissioners’ meeting and received some information from the Lake County Engineer regarding the recently passed Transportation Bill that included the hike in our gasoline taxes.
Here is a recap of the history of the gasoline tax and what it means for each Ohio county.
An interesting fact not mentioned on the recap is that the $.19 / gallon increase in the diesel fuel does not benefit the States at all. All of that money is funneled back to the Federal government. (Why are we not surprised?)
The County Engineers prepared a summary of the gas tax bill: County Engineers Review of Gas Tax Bill
They seem absolutely giddy about the passage of the bill.
