Sorry, Illinois QC residents.

You could soon be paying A LOT more at the pump.

According to WREX in Rockford, a new proposal from Illinois lawmakers would increase the state gas tax by 19 cents per gallon.

The reason for the massive tax hike? To help pay for transportation infrastructure repairs and purchase new trains for the state.


The same bill also proposes raising fees for DMV services, like driver's licenses and registration.
