Governor Parnell Proposes Motor Fuel Tax Suspension
January 14, 2011, Juneau, Alaska – Governor Sean Parnell today submitted legislation to suspend the motor fuel tax for 24 months.
“Alaskans are feeling the pinch of rising fuel costs when purchasing fuel for their vehicles, boats, snow machines and planes,” Governor Parnell said. “While suspending the motor fuel tax would provide a temporary reduction in the cost of motor fuel, action is necessary for long-term solutions to high energy costs.”
Suspending the $.08 per gallon of state fuel tax will save Alaskans money at the pump.
