Welcome to 2023, gas is more expensive here!

​Michigan drivers will be paying more at the pump in 2023 because the Michigan gas tax has gone up. A law signed under former Michigan Governor Rick Snyder increased Michigan's gas tax from 27.2 cents a gallon to 28.6 cents. ​The rate increase is either 5% each year or the rate of inflation. The extra money will go toward Michigan roads and infrastructure, but some drivers say the increase has caught them off guard. ​"We have to do a better job at relaying where the money is going," State Representative Alex Garza said. "They see their taxes going up in one way or another and want to make sure it's going to roads and infrastructure."​
