Kentucky state law will kick in on July 1 and automatically raise the state’s gas tax 2.4 cents a gallon. The law has raised the state’s gas tax in nine of the last 10 years.
The state will collect an additional $72 million in tax revenue as Kentucky’s tax on a gallon of gasoline goes up to 32.3 cents. That will be almost twice the gas tax we were paying a decade ago.
The law partly ties the gas tax rate to the average wholesale price of gasoline.
Members of the Grant County Friends of the Shelter are hoping to collect unwanted items for a yard sale later this month that will benefit the four-legged residents of the Grant County Animal Shelter.
The yard sale is planned from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on July 27 at the Grant County Chamber Office, 1350 N. Main (across from the Thrift Store) in Williamstown. A rain date is planned for Aug. 3
