With Democrats also expanding a regional gas tax, overall gas taxes will more than double in some areas of the state from 16 cents to 34 cents, according to NBC Washington. Democratic lawmakers said the increases would help reduce traffic on busy roadways in the state.

Minority Leader Todd Gilbert (R.) criticized the move for hurting family budgets. “Virginians need to buckle up,” he said.
