Ohio's new gas tax signed by Gov. Mike DeWine will cost you 10.5 cents a gallon more this summer, and that's not the end of the burden on taxpayers. News Center 7's Jim Otte investigated the real cost of the tax hike since truckers will be facing an even bigger increase.

How much money will Butler County communities get from Ohio’s new gas tax?

The county, for example, will reap the biggest reward next year, with about $1.5 million more in fuel tax funding. The city of Hamilton is next with about $1.2 million in extra funding.
