Indiana Gas Tax Debate


Democrats, who control the Indiana House, want to eliminate the state's sales tax on gasoline.

But, Republicans, who control the Indiana Senate, are skeptical.

Senate Republicans say it is unlikely the proposal would become law.

Republicans say exempting gasoline from the state's six percent sales tax could cost the state as much as $300 million a year.

And, it would only save drivers a few cents at a time.

House Democrats first suggested eliminating the sales tax on gas in August when gas prices were about three dollars a gallon.
