Interesting map, showing what each state charges in taxes for gasoline, per gallon....

Yep, unless you catch some tourists around Carowinds or other sites that have not been to South Carolina. Occasionally I travel to SC on business and make certain my tank is full before I leave. It's not quite to the point that I will make a 60 mile r/t from NC just to buy the $0.20 per gallon cheaper gas, but I can buy as little in NC as possible before heading to the Palmetto state.
Oh, this is not good news?/s
Ooops. I missed CT. Bummer, we’re number 3.
The federal gas tax
California state tax
State and Federal tax total
68.9 - 54.1 = 14.8
~8.75% *drops 1% to 7.75% July 1st
Huh? What? $1.45 per gallong in Wyoming? Really? I paid $4.039 a gallon for diesel today in CA.
Ouch. Major fail.
Fl. has no State Income Tax. We all pay. Not just you foreigners. lol.
Connecticut has the same problem as the United States Government,Too damn much spending.They don’t have a money problem.
I’m in California, too, with a vacation condo in AZ and the gas price differentials are ridiculous. It’s still close to $4 a gallon for premium here (I think it’s $3.89 or so) and it was $3.56 for premium when I filled up in Bullhead City last weekend. Any California gas station near the state line is basically screwed.
But FL has no state income tax and our state sales tax is lower than NY. Of my friends on Long Island, most pay in excess of 9K yearly property taxes. Here in FL I pay one tenth that.
All states play careful “balancing” games - you may have no income tax, or such, but the state will take it out of your hide another way.
KS is a very strange state.
I know a few Kansans. They are very traditional, and seem conservative, yet a strain of independance runs through them. You never know what side of an issue they are going to come down on.
For instance, “Tiller the Killer” operated in KS for years, and there were never any brakes put on the man (legally)until some nut shot him.
Now you know why all those rich movie stars are buying ranches in WY.
All we have to do is head west to Dixon, north to Rockford or south to Mendota and we’ll find cheaper gas. We’re always higher than around us (except to the east). But it makes no sense to drive that far to fill up. But my wife works in Rockford, so she plans it to fill up there as much as she can. As for right here, the Casey’s in Creston (5 miles east of us) has the cheapest gas always, by about 5-8¢/gal.
>> “until some nut shot him.” <<
Thje person that shot Tiller was courageous, and did what was necessary to save inocent lives. Tiller would still be murdering unborn children, had he not been shot.
The station closest to me, in Indiana, also had the lowest price around there, and yesterday when I went to fill up, they were out of gasoline entirely.
You’re such a young one! You could always buy gas at Hudson stations in Overland Park for $.25 a gallon. We used to wait for a gas war and it was $.19/gal though. Filled up two teenagers cars and mine every Monday morning for $20.00.
