State may raise gas tax 13 cents a gallon

Gas prices are once again on the rise. Now now a state task force is calling for the gas tax to increase, too.

The 62-member task force wants Ohio's 28 cents per gallon fuel tax be increased by 13 cents to raise more money for the state's transportation needs.

The same task force also says the state should consider hiking vehicle registration and driver's license fees by a dollar each to raise even more transportation revenue.
