Georgia's suspension of state gas tax extended

By Steve Winslow Anchor/Reporter

Commuters in Georgia have more to be thankful for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

Governor Brian Kemp has extended the State of Emergency that suspends the state's excise tax on motor and locomotive fuel, until November 29th.

A press release from the Governor's Office on Wednesday morning says that due to the ongoing high prices and uncertain economic conditions cause by failed policies out of Washington, D.C. that they hope the continued suspension of the gas tax will deliver relief to families while the Thanksgiving holiday approaches.

This marks the third straight month Governor Kemp has suspended the state's fuel tax on purchases at the pump.
