Maryland governor says extending gas tax suspension ‘may be necessary’

March 24, 2022

Maryland’s suspension of the nearly 37-cent state gas tax is set to expire April 16. But Gov. Larry Hogan told WBAL Radio that it “may be necessary” to extend it beyond the original 30-day period approved by lawmakers. The move to suspend the state’s gas tax came after Comptroller Peter Franchot floated the idea for a 90-day “gas tax holiday” during a meeting of the Board of Revenue Estimates earlier this month. At the Board of Public Works meeting Wednesday, Franchot repeated his support for a 90-day suspension of the gas tax.
