Gas Prices On The Rise In Pa.

New York residents may not be so anxious to drive over the border to Pa. to make their gasoline purchases these days.  Effective yesterday taxes on both gasoline and diesel have increased in Pa.  Gasoline taxes have gone up 9.5 cents per gallon while diesel taxes have risen 13 cents per gallon.

For a number of years New York residents who live close to the Pa. state line have taken a short drive to places like Hallstead, Montrose and Great Bend to take advantage of lower gas prices at the pump due in large part to less tax added on to the base price.

Under the new Pa. law another tax on gas will be added at the start of 2015 and then again in 2017.  According to the Associated Press and other sources the tax revenue raised will go for needed repairs and modernization for bridges, highways and mass transit facilities.
