Are Democrats playing gas pump politics with tax relief?

The state gas tax, currently 39.2 cents per gallon, is set to increase by 2.4 cents on July 1, according to the state Department of Revenue. But with Pritzker’s signature, that bump will be pushed off until Jan. 1, with the exact amount to be determined by where inflation stands at the end of September. Drivers will be hit with another increase on July 1, 2023.
