NH gas tax increases, effective July 1

Posted: Updated:

Granite Staters will soon have to pay more at the pump. Governor Maggie Hassan has signed a bill that raises the tax on gas and diesel by 4 cents per gallon.

The tax is jumping to 22 cents a gallon starting July 1. It is the first increase in more than 20 years.

The move is designed to fund highway improvements and to pay off $200 million in borrowing to finish expansion work on Interstate 93.

Vermont's gas tax is about 25 cents a gallon.
