In Indiana, the Department of Revenue announced that the gasoline tax will increase by only one cent per gallon, while the diesel and biodiesel tax will increase by two cents, reaching 59 cents per gallon. Similarly, in Missouri, a 3-cent increase in motor fuel taxes is expected, reaching 27 cents per gallon. This increase will be implemented gradually between July 1st and December 31st.

Meanwhile, in New Jersey, an initiative to annually increase fuel taxes and fees on electric vehicles has sparked controversy. The state plans to gradually increase fuel taxes by around 1.9 cents per year over the next five years, and establish an annual fee of $250 for electric vehicles, increasing by $10 each year for five years. This proposal has stirred discontent among stakeholders in New Jersey.

In Virginia, an increase in fuel taxes is anticipated. The diesel tax will increase from 30.8 to 31.8 cents per gallon, and the gasoline tax will rise from 29.8 to 30.8 cents. Additionally, taxes on blended diesel and gasoline will also increase by one cent, reaching 31.8 cents and 30.8 cents respectively.

However, Maryland is in a different situation. While other states will experience fuel tax increases, Maryland will see a reduction. According to the state comptroller’s office, starting July 1st, the gasoline tax will be 46.1 cents per gallon, compared to the current 47 cents, while diesel and biodiesel taxes will decrease to 46.85 cents per gallon from the current 47.75 cents.

Although these price increases have not yet been fully implemented and some will take effect gradually next month, comments and opposition have already emerged. Despite expectations of a continued decrease during the summer, these states will face increased costs in the near future, posing additional concerns and challenges for residents and businesses.
