This includes repaving projects (brown lines) and rural road safety projects (green lines) being paved for by increases in the state’s gasoline tax. Another 2-cent increase went into effect Monday.
On Monday, people driving in South Carolina -- including Kershaw County -- began paying 2 cents more in gasoline taxes when filling up their cars, trucks, motorcycles and other vehicles. In 2017, the state legislature approved a total of a 12-cent increase in the gasoline tax at the rate of 2 cents a year for six years.
