Expect higher prices at the pump.

Bolingbrook Gas Tax to Go Up Aug. 1
In addition to approving a gun range and a new animal hospital, the Bolingbrook Village Board on Tuesday OK'd a two-cent gas tax increase.

The increase, which brings the village's tax tax to 7 cents per gallon, takes effect Aug. 1. 

In April, nearby Plainfield decided to repeal a sunset provision and keep a 2011 gas tax increase in place. Plainfield's gas tax is 4 cents per gallon.
