The Michigan Senate is considering increasing gasoline taxes over the next five years.
The House approved a vote to gradually increase the tax on gas from 19-cents-a-gallon to as much as 32 -cents. The hike in price will be to generate more money to fix Michigan's infrastructure. The plan would bring an additional $450 million per year. However, because the per-gallon fuel taxes can only be raised by a penny per year, the Senate is considering other options to help the state's roads. The Senate is meeting this week to discuss the legislation.
