Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has signed an executive order to suspend state taxes on gasoline and diesel fuel due to higher prices. The suspension, which lasts from Wednesday until October 12, comes after the state gave up an estimated $1.7 billion in revenue during a previous suspension from March 2022 to January 2023. Georgia's surplus cash and full rainy day account make it capable of forgoing the revenue. The move allows Kemp to shift the state's political conversation away from a grand jury's indictment of former President Donald Trump and others for attempting to overturn Georgia's 2020 presidential election results.
