Connecticut’s tax on diesel fuel will increase by 9 cents on July 1, the state revenue services commissioner told lawmakers in a letter on Wednesday, the statutory deadline for the agency to announce the impact of an annual adjustment.

The change, determined since 2007 by a formula based on the wholesale cost of diesel, will bring the diesel tax to 49.2 cents a gallon. The change represents a 23% increase over the current tax. Barring legislative action, it will remain at that rate until it is adjusted again on July 1, 2023.
