Your State's Gas Tax

I find that in discussing gasoline prices, a lot of people don't know what their state's gasoline tax is.  So, as a public service (hat tip to Mark Perry)



  1. Mike:

    I live in Nebraska and gas is averaging about $3.85/gallon here. So, I'm paying almost 12% tax on every gallon.

    Incredible, isn't it folks? If the oil companies were making that much profit on every gallon, can you imagine how much more the fools in Congress would be demonizing them?

  2. Dan:

    I'm in Illinois, which has one of the highest gas taxes in the country. Gas here is now around $4.30 a gallon.

    Cook County just raised the sales tax one point to above 10%, meaning we now have the highest urban sales tax in the nation. My cup of coffee from Dunkin' Donuts (a small cup) just set me back $1.65, up 10 cents from yesterday, before the new tax took effect.

  3. Foxfier:

    Linked. This is SUCH a good way to display the problem.

  4. Sol:

    I feel like such a moron for never realizing this is the reason gas is cheaper across the boarder in Toledo....

  5. chamila:

    Better idea to show some thing to peoples who lives in this state. Otherwise we should find a solution for this problem soon

    I live in Kansas and thankfully our legislature has been able to hold our fuel taxes at the level you see here. Kathleen Sibelius, our obammy loving guv, would like to see them higher. That would cause serious harm to the main business in Kansas. Agriculture. Tractors, Combines, and Grain Trucks require fuel. Therfore, farmers and ranchers require fuel. We sell alot of wheat, corn and cattle to everybody. The sign on I35 near Emporia says "One Kansas farmer feeds 128 people and you!)
