Iowa Residents React To Recent Gas Tax Increase
KELO - Sioux Falls
LARCHWOOD, IA - If you stop to get gas in Iowa, the price at the pump is going up over the weekend.
Governor Brandstad approved a 10-cent increase on gas tax throughout the state.
Sunday, the price of gas is a little higher for Iowa drivers. A 10 cent increase was approved to help fund road and bridge repairs across the state of Iowa.
"I guess if we have to do it, we have to pay it. That's the way it is. I'm not happy. But yeah, we'll pay it," said Yvonne Wulf, Larchwood resident.
"It's not surprising. It hasn't gone up for quite a while. Roads and bridges and everything need a lot of repair, so it's not a big surprise," said Larchwood resident, Karl Dieters.
Karl Dieters is a farmer from the Larchwood area. He says the price increase won't impact him much.
