Diesel Fuel Taxes By State

Diesel Fuel Taxes

Just like regular or premium unleaded gasoline, Diesel Fuel Taxes in most states are quite significant!

In fact, when combined with Federal Taxes -- taxes on diesel fuel are actually higher on average than gasoline taxes.

These days diesel fuel costs more than regular gasoline so higher taxes on diesel fuel hurt even more!

"The more you earn, the less you keep and now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul to take, if the tax-collector hasn't got it before I wake." ~Ogden Nash (www.QuoteGarden.com)

Also, because now Diesel Fuel costs more than regular gas, all of these higher diesel fuel taxes hit us where it hurts most - right in our wallets!

As well, just like gasoline, there are various state excise and other state taxes "hidden" in the cost of a gallon at your local gas station. Diesel Fuel Pump Sucking Up Your Cash Remember, unlike a "Sales Tax" where the amount of tax you're paying is obvious because it's added after the fact, these taxes are very mysterious because they're included in the per-gallon price you pay at the pump.

We want to make as many people as possible aware of the taxes they pay when they stop to "top it off" so they know when the fuel pump is sucking away all their money!
