With the largest gas tax hike in state history set to hit Connecticut on July 1, Sen. Rob Kane, R-Watertown, on Monday (June 24) will be at Big Daddy’s Gulf Station, 1633 Main St. North, Woodbury to talk with motorists about an effort to prevent the upcoming pain at the pump.

Kane, whose district includes Oxford, will be at the Gulf Station from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. getting the word out about the tax hike and adding taxpayers’ signatures to an “Axe the Gas Tax” petition.

The petition can be signed online at

Connecticut’s current taxes on a gallon of gas total about 47 cents. The July 1 tax hike will tack on about four more cents per gallon.
