Could the gas tax go up?

North Carolina's gasoline tax could go up under a bill moving its way through the Senate. The current tax, 29.9 cents a gallon, has been the highest allowed by state law since 2006, following Hurricane Katrina. To boost revenues, the Senate is proposing to make 29.9 cents the minimum rate, instead of the maximum. A final Senate vote could come next week.
