    The summer-driving season is over, but drivers across California will see an increase in prices at the pump starting on Nov. 1.

    That's because a statewide gas tax will go into effect.

    The new tax equates to a 12-cents-per-gallon increase for most drivers. Diesel users will have to pay 20 cents more per gallon.

    Gas taxes, which will likely bring in an extra $5 billion, will be utilized for state and local projects.
