September 06, 2005

ATLANTA — Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue said he will sign an executive order Sept. 2 that will exempt consumers from state motor fuel taxes through the end of September to "relieve some of the financial burden" in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, according to the Associated Press.The order will remove the 7.5-cents-a-gallon tax and a four percent sales tax on gas, the governor said, and was set to begin at midnight. The move comes as gasoline in some parts of the country has risen well above $3 a gallon.
