Thomasville, Georgia-- Get ready to pay more for gasoline.

Georgia is increasing its gasoline tax by two cents a gallon on December first. The state revenue department says that's required by law because gas prices jumped so much during the hurricane season.

People in the car business say they've already felt the repercussions. "It has affected business a lot, especially in the SUV's. A lot of people don't want them now because of the gas prices going up. Storms are hurting it because it goes higher there. So, it has affected it a good bit," says finance saleswoman, Jodi Jones.

The increase will put Georgia's gas tax at almost ten cents per gallon. Revenue department officials say the state will recalculate in January.
