"While nobody likes a tax increase, obviously it comes at a time with falling gas prices, and, in fact, our projections show that prices will continue to [moderately fall] offsetting this tax that consumers will see," said Aubrey Layne, Virginia Secretary of Transportation.
"Our transportation needs in the Commonwealth are great, and most of them are fairly large projects with big price tags," Secretary Layne said.
Secretary Layne said the 5-cent gas tax increase is expected to bring in $120 million a year. That money will be used on transit projects, roads and bridges. However, it won't be enough, so the state will have to reallocate some funds.
"Fortunately, because of the reduced amount of gasoline prices, I don't think their pocket books will be hurt significantly at 5 cents a gallon, but what they should see and expect from the state transportation agencies is that money being put to work," Secretary Layne said.
Secretary Layne said there is a glimmer of good news: if Congress does pass the Marketplace Fairness Act, the 5 percent tax will go back down to 3.5 percent.
