LINCOLN — Nebraskans will soon see an increase in what they pay at the pump.
The Revenue Department says tax will increase from 26.1 to 26.8 cents-per-gallon beginning January 1st.
The fuel tax was approved during the last legislative session as a way to generate revenue for highway projects and maintenance.
Each cent of motor fuel tax will give the state about $12 million in annual revenue.
The new rate will be in effect for six months before resetting in July.
