Inflation is raising the cost of living for all Americans. At every cash register, customers are paying more. The price of gas has dropped from record-high amounts earlier in the year. But, the fees per gallon have not gone down to $4. (source)

What is on the books to aid Americans? Some states have approved gas tax holidays. Here are the current and upcoming ones.

Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont signed a bipartisan bill on March 24, 2022. The initial proposal lifted the state's 25-cent-per-gallon excise tax for three months. The original period was from April 1 to June 30. But the gas tax holiday got extended to November 30, 2022. The tax pause provides consumers with 71-87% relief on trips to the pump. (source)

New York

In April, Albany lawmakers approved a budget to provide a gas tax holiday. It pauses the state's 8-cent fuel tax and an 8-cent sales tax between June 1 and December 31. The move could reduce gas costs for New York drivers by about 16 cents a gallon. The seven-month holiday gives drivers about $609 million in direct relief. (source)


Governor Ron DeSantis signed a budget in May 2022. It includes a one-month fuel-tax holiday beginning October 1. This holiday will lower the price of gas by 25.3 cents a gallon. (source)
