What you need to know about Illinois gas tax increases in 2023

A six-month postponement of a gas tax increase in Illinois ended New Year's Day, but multiple pieces of legislation introduced in the General Assembly could counter the hike.

The pause stopped a 2.2-cent per gallon increase originally slated for last July 1 when the tax was set to rise to 41.4 cents per gallon. Gov. JB Pritzker's signature on the state budget, however, paused that tax increase until the new year and also included a yearlong suspension of the 1% grocery tax.

Democrats saw this move as a much-needed form of tax relief for Illinoisans amid times of high inflation. Republicans chalked it up as an election season gimmick.
