South Carolina Gasoline Tax

Filed under: Uncategorized — NotforHire @ 10:36 am

I’m reading a lot about the upcoming budget and the Governor’s plan for a new tax structure, and I am wondering why raising our state’s gasoline tax has not come up.

We are currently ten cents lower than our neighboring states of Georgia and North Carolina, and raising this tax has such positive implications, I do not understand why it is not on the table.

Are there some narrow interests at work here, to the detriment of our state as a whole?

Raising the South Carolina gas tax is a no brainer proposition, and a hard look needs to be taken at why it is not being brought to the fore.
