Gas Tax Holiday: How Much Can Drivers In US States Save?

The pandemic caused by COVID-19 has ended, and with it comes a return to normalcy across the world. However, the price of gasoline has skyrocketed.

To combat the rapidly rising prices, several states have implemented a Gas Tax Holiday, which temporarily suspends state-imposed taxes on gas prices.

The conclusion of the study was that "however, these price reductions were frequently not maintained throughout the entirety of the holiday."

Maryland: Maryland was the first state to suspend its gas tax, saving consumers 36 cents per gallon on gasoline and 37 cents on diesel.
