Nebraska Gas Tax Hike To Ring In New Year

Nebraskans will see an increase in gas prices to start 2023.

The Nebraska Department of Transportation says the state's gas tax is set to go up 17 percent in January.

The 4.2 cent increase will put the tax at 29 cents a gallon.

N-D-O-T says the tax rates are adjusted every six months to pay for road and bridge repairs across the Cornhusker State.

The highest state gas taxes were in the second half of 2020 as Covid was hitting, when Nebraskans were paying 33 cents a gallon.

Over half of the country pays higher gas taxes than Nebraska.
