Indiana To Charge More for Electric, Hybrid Vehicles

The Indiana Department of Transportation says Hoosiers who own electric and hybrid vehicles will pay a lot more for their annual registration fees starting in January.

INDOT says it’s due to a projected four-to-five-percent decrease in gasoline consumption nationally in 2025.

Lawmakers say that much of a drop is not sustainable for the state’s Community Crossings Fund that has nearly 60-percent of its funding from the gas tax.

Over 90-percent of the projects that program pays for are roadwork.
