Gas prices in Maryland are TOO HIGH, but WE CAN do something about it. Join us in petitioning our governor and state representatives to pause the Maryland state gas tax until prices drop and inflation eases.
Sign the Petition
As of June 14, 2022,
- The price of gas in Maryland is over two times higher than it was in June of 2020 (GasBuddy). And, the Maryland gas tax is increasing by almost 7 cents on July 1, 2022, from 35 cents to 42 cents, an 18% increase. (NFIB)
- The high price of gas is a great hardship on Maryland citizens, increasing transportation costs AND the cost of other basic items, including food and housing. (Southern Maryland Chronicle).
- The state of Maryland can afford to pause the gas tax. Maryland is expecting a $4 billion+ budget surplus in Fiscal Year 2023, while the recent 30-day gas tax holiday only cost the state $94 million in revenue. (Maryland.gov)
Given these compelling facts, we, the petition signers, demand that the Maryland State Legislature pause the Maryland state gas tax and ask that our governor and state legislators convene a special session immediately to pause the gas tax. The gas tax should remain suspended until one month after the legislature reconvenes in January 2023.
