Gov. Hogan signs 30-day gas tax holiday into effect

March 18th, 2022 by WCBC Radio

In a little over a week, Maryland legislators have passed the gas tax holiday for 30 days that was proposed by comptroller Peter Franchot.  On Friday, Gov. Larry Hogan signed the bill into effect after it passed both the House and the Senate. "This gas tax holiday returns $100 million to Marylanders’ wallets and should provide economic relief for motorists who have seen prices soar in recent weeks," Franchot said in a statement. "While I continue to believe that a three-month gas tax holiday would have offered more substantial savings and been easily absorbed due to the state's historic surplus, any respite from the current pain at the pump is welcome."
