Ahead of a five-cent hike Saturday in the state’s gas tax, Democratic Gov. Wes Moore is calling on the Maryland General Assembly to address the state’s automatic increases, which he said are harmful to the financial bottom lines of working-class families, when it reconvenes in January. Maryland’s tax on gasoline will increase Saturday from 42.7 cents to 47 cents per gallon. The tax on diesel will go from 43.5 cents to 47.5 cents per gallon.
