Gas Taxes by State

The issue of taxes on gas has come into focus lately because of the increasing prices of gas all around the world because of the ongoing war in Ukraine and inflation in general. To combat this, President Biden has proposed a tax break on the federal level, which is to run until September 2022 in order to ease pressure on consumers. 

Other legislation regarding gas taxes has also taken to the administration’s idea of a tax break, with the Federal Gas Suspension and Windfall Profits Act of 2022 being introduced to the house in May. This bill goes much further than what the president called for, by proposing a suspension of the excise tax on gas until December 31, 2022, instead of September. The bill also proposes a 50% tax on excess profits made by oil companies in the next taxable year after 2021.

Federal taxes currently stand at 18 cents per gallon, and the revenue earned goes to the Highway Trust Fund for infrastructure projects and the like. However federal taxes are not the only taxes levied on gas, as there are taxes set by the state governments too, which differ per state, just like tobacco and alcohol taxes. 

If you want to learn more about gas taxes in your state or nationally, please refer to the data in the charts.
