The average nationwide tax collected on each gallon of gasoline sold at the retail station is 49.5 cents. Of that, 18.4 cents per gallon goes to the federal government; the rest ends up in state and local government coffers.
The amount of gasoline taxes collected by states can vary widely, from just 26.4 cents per gallon in Alaska, to as much as 69.6 cents per gallon in New York.
The Federal, State and Local Governments are making nothing off electric cars and that my friends will never ever happen. Kiss the electric car from any company goodbye, not just Tesla. The problem I have with Tesla, the stock is trading at a BUBBLE while Ford is around $15 and GM around $32. No person with any type of common sense can argue that the price of Tesla's stock is a HUGE BUBBLE and in reality, the stock should be trading around $1.50 to $5.00 on a good day. Tesla sells Auto Parts and Green Credits, See tesla 10-Q for verification, it is sitting right in the 10-Q for everyone to see where the "FAKE" revenue came from, Tesla lost over $11,000 per car sold. Tesla made no money, no profits and is running on fumes with not enough cash to start production of the Model X which is very alarming. SELL Tesla before you cannot and lock in profits.
