Governor, top lawmakers agree to pause Maryland gas tax 30 days amid surging fuel prices

March 11, 2022

Gov. Larry Hogan and top leaders in the Maryland General Assembly agreed to lift the state’s tax on gasoline and diesel to help blunt sharply rising costs for motorists. Lawmakers plan to act in the coming days to pass the monthlong tax break for drivers, House Speaker Adrienne A. Jones and Senate President Bill Ferguson, both Democrats, said in a joint statement Thursday. Hours earlier, Hogan, a Republican, had called for a temporary suspension of the gas tax “to help with the pain at the pump.”
