DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Iowans will start paying more at gas pumps starting Sunday.

Wednesday, Governor Terry Branstad signed a bill into law that raises Iowa's gas tax by 10 cents per gallon.

The new rate begins March 1.

The higher tax is expected to bring in around $215 million per year that will go towards fixing roads and bridges across the state.
