Ohio lawmakers hike gas, diesel taxes to fund road fixes
Drivers would pay 10.5 cents a gallon more for gas and 19 cents a gallon more for diesel fuel under a long-awaited compromise struck by state lawmakers Tuesday. The compromise ended days of negotiations among legislative leaders and Republican Gov. Mike DeWine, who had wanted the rate to be much higher. After approval by a bipartisan conference committee, it moved quickly through the full House and Senate.
