Florida Gas Tax of 14.5 cents (10.5-cpg sales tax plus 4-cpg (CPG = Cost Per Gallon) excise tax). Gasoline tax rate increased .2-cpg on 1/1/05. Tax rate changes annually based on CPI.
Additional tax per gallon =2.2-cpg tax/fee for environmental inspection purposes (5 cents per barrel tax for the Water Quality Assurance Trust Fund, 80 cents per barrel for the Inland Protection Trust Fund, 2 cents per barrel for the Coastal Protection Trust Fund and 1/8 cents per gallon for weights and measures inspection fee).
And an additional minimum 9.9 to 17.8 cent per gallon local option tax portion with the weighted average of 14.6 cents per gallon. This varies by county and city.
Therefore, depending on where you live in Florida, all the total of gasoline taxes can vary from an average of 42 cents per gallon to 52.9 cents per gallon.
