FRANKFORT, Ky. (WBKO) -- Kentucky drivers will have a reason to be excited about 2014.

Starting tomorrow, the Commonwealth's gas tax will go down slightly.

The state's tax will drop by a penny and a half on January first.

While lower gas prices sound good, the lower tax means the Kentucky road fund will have a smaller budget to fix roads and bridges.

Drivers have mixed reactions about the lower tax.

"Don't really matter too much, going to have to pay for it either way," said driver Kyle Clark.

"in all honesty, those roads need to be done and they're already redoing some other roads, so if we take a little bit from that, i don't see the problem," said driver Daniel Banaszynski.

The Kentucky road fund is expected to lose about $45 million dollars in 2014 because of the lower gas tax. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
