Georgia motorists are getting another temporary break at the gas pumps starting tomorrow.  Today, Governor Brian Kemp declared a state of emergency over inflation concerns and announced he was suspending the state’s 31.2 cents per gallon gas tax starting September 13.  The savings will be 35 cents per gallon for diesel fuel.

“While high prices continue to hit family budgets, hardworking Georgians deserve real relief and that’s why I signed an executive order today to deliver it directly to them at the gas pump,” said Kemp.

Kemp’s order goes into effect Wednesday at midnight and will end October 12 at 11:59 pm.

This is not the first time Kemp has suspended the state’s gas tax to help Georgians with rising fuel costs.  He suspended it from March to December, 2022 resulting in savings to residents of over $1.7 billion
