30 Nov 2005 Gas Taxes By State
The Periodical has a map showing gasoline taxes on a state-by-state basis.
New Yorkers top the chart by paying 63 cents per gallon in state (44.5 cents) and federal (18.4 cents) gas taxes combined. (As bad as that is, it pales in comparison to Great Britain’s tax, which is the equivalent of $4.20 cents per gallon.) Alaska’s rate is lowest at 8 cents per gallon in state gas taxes.
