CULVER CITY, Calif. (AP) - California regulators have ordered a 3 ½ cent gas tax hike to take effect this summer.
The Sacramento Bee (http://tinyurl.com/a9x93cg ) reported that the state Board of Equalization on Thursday voted 3-2 to increase at the end of its three day meeting in Culver City.
The state excise tax on a gallon of gas is now 39 ½ cents a gallon.
The state Legislature passed a law in 2010 requiring the board to adjust the excise tax each March. The increase takes effect on July 1.
