Louisiana pays 38.4 cents per gallon in taxes. Currently, 20 cents stays in the state.
According to this, Louisiana suppliers sell 6,918,600 gallons of gasoline per day. If my math is anywhere near correct, that amount of gasoline should generate $1,383,720 per day in road tax money.
Some of our legislators want to add an additional dime per gallon. For the roads. I thought that we paid goas tax already for the roads. What happened to that money?
Coming of the back of an horrific hurricane season and a devastating government imposed Covid crisis, I don't really think that any new taxes are a good idea.
