·  High gasoline prices boost city revenues.  How will your company prepare for the increased gas prices?

San Gabriel Valley Tribune, Jan 22/2012

In the 1980s and 1990s halcyon days of economic development, cities would see dollar signs when they’d usher in a big box store or auto dealership. In the revenue game, sales tax is king and these big producers were treated as royalty. 

But that was then.  Things have changed.

The changes began with the Great Recession of 2008, when commercial developers stopped biting as easy credit vaporized.  Adding insult to injury, as the economy has begun rebounding, the state has swooped in and snatched away redevelopment, a potent tool for attracting big producers, leaving an economic forecast that’s cloudy for most local cities.

But buried deep in the pages of financial reports is a silver lining.  Since the recession, cities have gradually been benefiting from rising gasoline prices.  Higher prices at the pump means more sales taxes paid per fill up.  As a result, cities in 2010 and 2011 have been seeing gasoline stations rise nearer the top of sales tax revenue producers.

“What we are seeing is higher fuel prices are one of the drivers of sales tax growth statewide,” said Andy Nickerson, president of HDL Companies in Diamond Bar, which works with 335 cities across North America on sales tax audits.

The local share of sales taxes to cities in the San Gabriel Valley from fuel and service stations increased from $5.2 million to $6.3 million in the third quarter of 2011 over the same period in 2010, according to an HDL report to the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments.  The 20.1 percent increase was the largest increase in any category, with the increase of sales tax revenues from auto sales a distant second at 7.1 percent     < To read more, click here >
