It’s been mentioned here that in IL there are sales taxes on gas.
mentions there are 7 states that charge a sales tax. You likely have not noticed this because the sales tax is included in the price per gallon at the pump.
All states have sales and other tax on fuel, but it is computed different in each state. That is why trying to establish a nationwide average is horse manure. Also lots of the fuel sold is for non-highway usage, but there is no paperwork to establish the real amount.
