(Baltimore, MD) — Marylanders are paying more than the national average for a gallon of gas. Drivers are frustrated with the sudden rise with gas prices going up 20 cents in the past month. On top of gas prices rising quickly, Governor Martin O’Malley is proposing adding a six-percent sales tax on gas. He says the state sales tax hasn’t risen in 20 years, leaving them with a transportation budget shortfall. The governor will have a hard fight to get the sales tax as several state leaders are against raising the price for a gallon of gas.
