Where Does Your Gas Tax Money Go?
You pay a tax every time you fill your car, but most drivers have no idea how much it is. We asked people in downtown Fort Worth if they know how much tax is on each gallon of gas at the pump. No one knew that it’s 38-point-4 cents a gallon. Many were surprised to find out barely more than 20 cents of that actually goes to Texas highways. And 15 cents leaves the state.
