    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana is heading into the Memorial Day weekend tied with California for the largest gas price increase in the U.S. over the past year, driven in part by a fuel tax increase enacted by the state’s Republican-dominated Legislature.

    Filling up a tank in Indiana cost an average of 66 cents a gallon more last week compared to a year ago, rising to $2.84 a gallon – a 30 percent increase. The nation increased an average of 45 cents the past year to $2.81 a gallon, a 19 percent increase, recent data from the American Automobile Association show. California’s 66-cent increase drove it to $3.63 a gallon, a 22 percent increase.
