This week's state tax map from the Tax Policy Blog covers gas taxes. New York, California and Connecticut are the worst, taking almost 50 cents for every gallon of gas you put in your car.
Iowa's 22 cents is about in the middle, though there is a push to raise that. Alaska's 8-cent tariff is the lowest, but it's probably not worth driving there just to fill your tank.
