SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- Starting January 1st, Oregon drivers will be paying more taxes. It's all part of the major transportation funding plan that lawmakers passed earlier this year.

House Bill 2017 is a 10 year investment in roads, rail, bridges, and ports. It will produce $5.3 billion in revenue over that time.

The money is coming from different taxes and fees. On Monday, the statewide gas tax will increase 4 cents.

Local gas attendants said drivers are used to seeing changes in prices, so they don't think too many people will be surprised by the increase. 

The price to register your vehicles in Oregon will also go up. There will be a 0.5 percent tax on new vehicles, along with a $15 fee on bicycles that cost more than $200.
