The only time NJ has the lowest taxes...
Not even this time; Alaska & Wyoming.
Generally speaking, the bluer the state, the higher the tax.
“The only time NJ has the lowest taxes...”
Not for long!
lets not forget the county taxes in each state also which vary widely....daytona beach for example is 3.63 to 3.89 a gal....in orlando it is still in the mid 3.50’s....
I thought California would be number one.
Volusia County - 12 cents!!
This site also lists the range of county gas taxes and other ‘fees’ not normally listed with taxes.
For example, in addition in California, other taxes include a 6% state sales tax and 1.25% county, plus additional local sales taxes and 1.2 cents per gallon state UST fee.
In South Carolina, they also have a 0.25 cpg inspection fee for inspection program and 0.50-cpg environmental fee for UST cleanup. Assessed on all petroleum products at the wholesale level.
How much is finally going to be too much?
And I don’t have to pump my own gas!
“the oil companies make $.10 a gallon.”
I thought the oil companies were making 10% profit. That would be more like 35 cents.
Lets make it tax free. Let everyone pay user tax on taco’s instead. Looks like the government could do a lot to help out.
The statewide excise tax is 14.5 cents per gallon for gasoline and 27.2 cpg for diesel.
The 14.5 cents represents 10.5 cpg sales tax plus 4 cpg excise tax. Gasoline tax rate increased .2 cpg on 1/1/05.
Tax rate changes annually based on CPI.
Does not include 2.2-cpg tax/fee for environmental inspection purposes (5 cents per barrel tax for the Water Quality Assurance Trust Fund, 80 cents per barrel for the Inland Protection Trust Fund, 2 cents per barrel for the Coastal Protection Trust Fund and 1/8 cents per gallon for weights and measures inspection fee).
Gasoline rate also does not include additional minimum 9.9 to 17.8 cent per gallon local option tax portion with the weighted average of 14.6 cents per gallon.
Therefore, depending on where you live in Florida, your overall gasoline tax can vary from an average of 52.9 cents per gallon to 45 cents per gallon.
I am waiting for Corzine to raise it anyday now...sigh
Ya but they are in business to make a profit just like your congressman.
Every source I have found says $.10 or so, nothing says 10%
But it all works out cause of Florida’s swift and ultra modern public transportation. The gleaming, well maintained infrastructure and
aahhhaa ahhhh ahhh Giant Bunnies, I swear great big green bunnies from outerspace with fangs!!!
Of the two I think the latter is the more plausible and interesting hallucination, don’t you?
Where is the cheapest gas (according to AAA).
That chart is as of 2005....in WA State our gas taxes are around 55 cents/gallon....
