Gas Tax Increase Hits the State of Pennsylvania

Pain at the pump isn't new, but it's going to be worse with the new gas tax. The state wholesale gas tax increased the first of the year, something that hasn't changed since 2006.
WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Pain at the pump isn't new, but it's going to be worse with the new gas tax. The state wholesale gas tax increased the first of the year, something that hasn't changed since 2006.

People filling up could pay around $0.10 more per gallon this new year.

This also means gas will gradually cost more over the next four years. Drivers could see around a $0.30 increase by 2018.

And consumers, like David Helfrick, are not exactly thrilled about this new year's change.

"Anything's not suitable, right now everything, even right now it's too high, unsuitable," said local Pennsylvania resident, David Helfrick. "Don't like it. Not a good thing. It hurts people in financial strain, stress," he said.

Even though the gas tax increase went into affect on New Year's Day. One local gas station attendant said gas prices started going up a couple days ago from $3.49 to $3.55.
