No surprise. The US policy pertaining to gasoline has been to provide abundant, relatively cheap gasoline at the pump.

A better analysis would separate out the taxes included in the total inflation adjusted price. Doing so would reveal that the gas itself has generally just gotten cheaper over time, not the apparent reverse.

The federal tax on gasoline ($0.184/gal) has been the same since 1993. That's a 60% decline in buying power for road and bridge maintenance. And it shows.

I'd like to see the breakdown of the individual state taxes on top of the Feds. Even city taxes added too.

Driving on some potholed pathways you'd swear no taxes were in place at all.

In my area of the world, the roads used by our tourist crowds are great. Go outside of that area and you'll probably see a gator swimming in a pothole. Think we can all give some great examples of this type of tax use.

Oh well....time for a shock upgrade.

Not so hard to find. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuel_taxes_in_the_United_States#State_taxes

Just subtract the 18.4 cents per gal to get the state rate.

In Michigan, they want to up the gas tax for the roads....even though, we are 18th, in gas taxes right now! Our roads are a mess, the state gave business a big tax break, and start taxing pensions! They should tax trucks more, one full truck, does the damage of 50,000 cars.....and I don't know how many scooters!

Actually, the accepted figure is that one fully loaded (80,000 lbs) 18 wheeler is the equivalent of 9,600 cars of 4,000 lb gross weight. CLICK HERE and go to page 36. (It's a 9 mb file, so give it time to download)

Of course, taxing the trucks will result in freight prices rising a slightly larger amount than the increased tax (mark up of expenses for profit). This will raise the cost of goods to all consumers, which will also be subject to sales tax. So in the final analysis, levying lets say $500 million in additional taxes on trucks will raise prices by $510 million (2% profit), plus an average of 6% sales tax, or a final total bill to the consumer of $541 million, in increased costs of goods.

There is no such thing as a free lunch.
