House gives final approval on gas tax

As taxes could go up, the state's gasoline tax likely will not go down next month. The House Monday night gave final approval to a Senate measure that would turn the current 29.9 cent cap on the gas tax to the minimum. That means the tax would remain at least that high through the middle of 2011. The gas tax had been expected to go down two cents July 1st. Under the new law, the tax will still be readjusted twice a year based on the wholesale price of gas. Governor Bev Perdue's office said the governor is expected to sign the change into law.
