Governor Robert McDonnell and the General Assembly recently passed a sweeping deal to overhaul how the state pays for transportation. The plan replaces Virginia’s gas tax of 17.5 cents per gallon with a 3.5 percent wholesale tax on motor fuels. It also increases the sales tax from 5 percent to 5.3 percent statewide and to 6 percent in areas of the state most in need of improvements.
