DOVER, Del. - Delaware drivers may have to foot the bill for the $5 million additional dollars to fix roads and bridges proposed in last week's State of the State in Delaware.
Gov. Jack Markell (D) proposes a 10 cent increase in Delaware's gas tax to help pay for the transportation improvements. In a press conference on Wednesday, Markell said the increase would cost a typical Delaware driver around $57 dollars more a year.
The current gas tax is 23-cents per gallon.
