C.G. Hill has a nice graphic showing the gas tax rates, state by state, around the U.S.
Illinois, where I live, is comfortably in third place, at 64.4 cents per gallon. The Federal tax is 18.4 cents, so Illinois tacks on another 46 cents.
Third place! So exciting. Only Connecticut and California tax their citizens more.
Oh, the pride I’m feeling right now … you have no idea.
