Starting Friday, drivers will pay a little bit more to fill up at the gas pump in Missouri.

 

 

The Missouri Legislature passed this year and Governor Parson signed a bill into law that would increase the fuel tax by two-and-a-half cents annually over the next five years. The law includes a rebate option for most drivers.

The funds raised will help to fix Missouri’s roads and bridges. This is the first time Missouri has increased its gas tax in 25 years.
