From some VA website...

Effective July 1, 2013, the Retail Sales and Use Tax rate for most purchases will increase to 5.3 percent statewide. In addition to the statewide increase, there is a 0.7 percent increase in the localities that make up the Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads regions. The tax on purchases of qualifying food for home consumption remains unchanged.

Similarly, the Vending Machine Sales Tax rate will increase to 7 percent in the localities that make up the Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads regions, and 6.3 percent throughout the rest of Virginia.

These rate increases are the result of the state sales tax increasing 0.3 percent statewide, with an additional 0.7 percent increase in Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads. Local sales tax remains 1 percent statewide.

Considering how long it's been since tolls were raised, I'd say we're due. I'd rather have road users paying for road repairs than others. OTOH, I think motorcycles ought to use the roads for free considering how much wear and tear we cause!--like on the new VA HOT lanes! :D
