Potential gas tax in Grants Pass

Grants Pass, Ore. —  Getting gas in Grants Pass may soon start costing you more. Grants Pass City Council is considering a gas tax initiative.

The proposed gas tax would either be one, two, or three cents per gallon, depending on what the city decides. The money collected would go toward street preservation and maintenance needs.

“A 3-cent per gallon gas tax would bring in around $1.5 million dollars for transportation infrastructure, which would provide council the opportunity reduce or eliminate our current transportation utility fee,” said Aaron Cubic, Grants Pass City Manager.

The city said current street fund revenues are not enough to cover costs. The tax will be discussed at a study session Monday.
