ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland's gas tax is scheduled to rise as part of a series of increases approved last year by lawmakers.

A gas tax hike of less than half a penny per gallon is scheduled to take effect on Tuesday.

When lawmakers approved a gas tax measure last year, the bill included incremental hikes, beginning with a 3.5-cents-per gallon increase last July.

The measure also provided for regular adjustments to account for inflation. Tuesday's increase is one of the half penny increases for inflation.

The next scheduled gas tax increase will be in January, when it's set to rise about another 3.5 cents.

AAA-Mid Atlantic says Maryland is ranked 25th in the nation for the highest state motor fuel tax rate on gasoline purchases.
