Interactive Map: Taxed at the Pump

Posted by Steve Anderson on Monday, June 27th, 2011

Autobloggreen has put together an interactive map detailing the amount of money a consumer is charged in taxes whenever they fill up at the pump. With a 70 cents  per gallon tax on gasoline, Connecticut ranks highest among the 50 states, while Alaska ranks lowest with a 26.4 cents per gallon.

“…gas tax is – *gulp* – a good tax. If, as the commission suggests, the gas tax hike is targeted for infrastructure improvement, that’s a lot of improved roads and bridges, and a lot of jobs. As someone who recently had a flat tire and bent wheel from a Rt. 80 pothole, and a $500.00 bill to go with it, I think this is a good idea.”
-Excerpted from AutoBlog Staff’s “Democrats and Republicans agree on higher gas taxes, just not in public all the time”
