Gas Tax Suspension Through Summer



7/1/2022

Today, Governor Brian P. Kemp signed two executive orders to alleviate the financial burden placed on Georgians due to the federal government's gross mishandling of inflation and to renew efforts to address supply chain issues.

In Executive Order 07.01.22.02, Governor Kemp has extended the temporary suspension of the state’s excise tax on motor fuel sales through the remainder of the summer. Additionally, this order suspends collection of the state sales tax on locomotive fuel. He also renewed the State of Emergency for Supply Chain Disruptions via Executive Order 07.01.22.01. Both orders will be effective through August 13th and can be found here.

"I am committed to fighting to ease the economic burden hardworking Georgians are facing due to disastrous policies from Washington politicians," said Governor Brian Kemp.

Because of Gov. Kemp and state leaders' fiscally conservative approach to budgeting, Georgia can confidently extend the state motor fuel tax suspension to help curb sky-high gas prices. Since the temporary suspension was implemented, Georgia’s average gas price has often been the lowest in the nation and is currently roughly 50 cents below the national average for a gallon of regular gas, according to AAA.
