URBANA -- Parking fines may not be going up in Urbana, but that's not the case for gas prices. Sunday, the city's gas tax went into effect.

Drivers will now pay $.04 on every gallon. This matches the gas tax already in effect in Champaign.

Still, some are upset about paying more at the pump. The tax is expected to bring in more than $700,000 for the city.
