Americans for Prosperity-Kentucky (AFP-KY) has launched its digital video campaign against raising the Commonwealth’s gas tax.

In this year’s legislative session, White House Bill 609 did not come to a vote.

The proposed measure would raise the state gas tax by at least 10 cents and cost Kentucky drivers more than $250 million per year.

The measure also includes a 13-cent hike on diesel, and fee increases for electric and hybrid vehicles.

AFP-KY is against the gas tax and its latest effort will use new video resources to get their message across that increasing the gas tax is wrong for the Commonwealth.

Its digital ad campaign highlights the need for Frankfort to curtail excessive spending and implement fundamental budget reforms.
