| July 01, 2013

Several states will see changes to the price of fuel at the pump as new taxes take effect today, July 1.

Here’s a list where changes will occur:

  • Nebraska: Motor fuels tax will increase 1.7 cents per gallon to 26.3 cents per gallon
  • North Carolina: Motor fuels tax is going up from 37.5 cents per gallon to 37.6 cents per gallon.
  • Kentucky: Fuel tax will go up 2.4 cents per gallon, raising the state tax to 32.3 cents per gallon.
  • Wyoming: The first fuel tax increase in 15 years will increase the tax to 10 cents per gallon.
  • Maryland: The first of three increases to take effect, the July 1 increase will push the state’s fuel tax to 27.5 cents per gallon
  • Virginia: The only state in which fuel prices could fall, when the state’s 17.5 cents per gallon fuel tax will be replaced with a smaller tax on the wholesale price of fuel, causing a drop of about six cents in the pump price.
