The six cents on a dollar food tax has been slowly decreasing, and not any too soon with skyrocketing food prices.

Next Tuesday, July 1, the tax will be at three cents.

The additional one cent reduction will save state taxpayers about $25 million annually.

Gov. Joe Manchin says the latest drop will also help level the playing field in border counties where grocery stores have to compete with out-of-state stores that don't charge a food tax.
