With the turn of the calendar to July, truck drivers will see increased diesel fuel prices in 12 states due to rising fuel taxes.

While some states’ increases are less than a cent, some states’ taxes on diesel will be immediately noticeable. All of the following fuel tax increases took effect Monday, July 1.

Although taxes on diesel here in the Commonwealth have not changed, drivers and operators in Connecticut and Rhode Island will see 2.6 cent and 1 cent increases respectively. Connecticut taxes are now 46.5 cents per gallon, and Rhode Island 34 cents per gallon.
