Road Tax

February 2024

Gasoline at $3 a gallon; I need to earn $4.21 to pay for that gallon. Our Outback (internal combustion engine) achieves about 32 MPG. As of recent the Commonwealth of Virginia determined that electric vehicle and fuel efficient vehicle owners do not pay enough road tax and charge additional road tax when renewing the vehicles registration. So much for carbon credit.

Local, State and Federal taxes based on my household income which is a private matter.


How much tax do we pay on a gallon of gasoline and on a gallon of diesel fuel?
