House Speaker Says He's Willing To Consider A Possible Gas Tax

The committee reviewing the financial situation facing the Ohio Department of Transportation heard testimony for a second day today and is expected to release a report recommending funding solutions very soon. It seems likely that an increase in the gas tax will be part of it. The leader of the Ohio House says hes willing to talk about it.

Speaker Larry Householder (R-Glenford) says hes all ears when it comes to a possible gas tax.

We would be willing to keep our powder dry and hear them out, listen to what the facts are then make decisions," Householder says.

Householder says hes also willing to sit down with Gov. Mike DeWine to talk.

1. Depends on the amount of tax

If it's a small enough amount that consumers don't notice it won't really matter. Do you notice 1 or 2 cents higher in gas prices? I personally do not and i'm as middle class as they come.

2. I suspect that it will be a larger increase than 1 or 2 cents.

I don't remember which state it was, but I recently posted an article where the proposed increase was 25 cents per gallon. While it wouldn't break the bank, it certainly could be $15-$20 per month.
