The state Board of Equalization today approved raising the excise tax for gasoline to 39.5 cents a gallon, a 3.5-cent increase that will take effect statewide on July 1.
Approval by a 3-2 vote came on the third and final day of BOE's meeting in Culver City.
The excise tax is the byproduct of laws signed by former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2010.
