Maryland Gas Tax
A House panel voted 15-4 on Monday for a gas tax measure to raise hundreds of millions of dollars per year, but with some changes to the plan initially submitted by Gov. Martin O’Malley.
Prices at the pump may be going up. Governor Martin O’Malley has unveiled his new transportation plan, which includes an increase in the gas tax.

Governor Martin O’Malley’s gas tax proposal makes it harder for the state to use transportation dollars to supplement other needs. A bill to apply the state’s sales tax to the price of gasoline is set to go before the General Assembly.
With the price of gas as high as it is, the idea of adding more in gas taxes doesn’t sit well with many drivers.
