Pandemic Leads To Record-Setting Fuel Tax

Jun 24, 2020

Nebraska's state motor fuels tax is expected to reach a new record high.  The "Omaha World Herald" reports that starting July 1st, the motor fuels tax will reach 33-point-two-cents per gallon, which marks an increase of nearly four cents.  State officials say the higher tax is needed to offset a loss of revenues to the state road-building fund due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
