Governor suspends state’s gas tax

May 11, 2021–2:20 p.m.


Governor Brian Kemp has signed an executive order declaring a state of emergency due to the petroleum shortage caused by the cyber-attack on the Colonial Pipeline Company.

The order suspends the state’s gas tax through Saturday and lifts weight restrictions for fuel tankers.

Statewide, gas prices jumped by 11-cents from Monday to Tuesday, according to AAA.

If anyone has any concerns or complaints regarding price gouging they can call 404-651-8600 or 1-800-869-1123.

News of the cyber-attack and the disruption of the pipeline have caused a rush on gas stations with people filling up.
