With gasoline prices the lowest they’ve been in years, some politicians see this as the opportune time to look at increasing gasoline taxes.
“Well, that’s what the governor says,” state Rep. Kent Calfee said Monday. “Of course, we don’t know how long gas prices well stay down like this.”
The average price for a regular gallon of gasoline in Tennessee was $1.95 on Tuesday, according to AAA.
A year ago, the price was $3.11.
