S.C. Two-Cent Gas Tax Now in Effect

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Gasoline prices are up in South Carolina and it has nothing to do with Mideast oil prices, or American production of hurricane threats.

South Carolina gas tax increased 2 cents per gallon Sunday, year two of six planned years of increases to provide more funding for roads and bridges.

South Carolina's gas tax is now 20.75 cents per gallon, one of the lowest in the country. Georgia's tax is 31.6 cents per gallon. North Carolina's is 34.3 cents.

Last July's initial 2-cent hike was South Carolina's first gas tax increase in 30 years.

With Sunday's increase, AAA says South Carolina has the second lowest gas prices in the country, just behind Alabama.

South Carolina Transportation Secretary Christy Hall says the state has a record level of roadwork underway.
