Due to the steady rise of gas prices, Onondaga County lawmakers are working on a plan to help offset the increasing cost.

Lawmakers are working on capping the County’s portion of sales tax on fuel at $4 per gallon. That means any price for gas above that amount wouldn’t be subject to county sales tax. For example, a 15-gallon fill-up priced at $4.50 a gallon would save about 30 cents.

The legislators are set to take up the matter on Friday morning.

The state has already agreed to reduce gas taxes.
