Local Gas Tax Increasing

(Las Vegas, NV) — The higher cost of living in Clark County means you’ll soon be paying more at the pump.

Last year, voters approved indexing the county’s fuel tax based on inflation.

It went up nearly four cents a gallon in January, and it will increase a similar amount starting July 1st.

The higher fuel tax is already funding $62 million dollars in new road projects for Southern Nevada.  The projects are expected to create over 800 construction jobs.
