Picture of the Day: Gas Taxes

From Jim Hamilton who has a great piece on why gas prices differ across states.  The main cause is differential taxes, but there is a lot more going on - go to his blog to read the post.  Here is a map from his post that shows gas taxes by state:

One thing he fails to mention is the ban on self-service gas in OR and NJ.  But as a rough guesstimate were are probably talking about 3 cents a gallon, which pales in comparison to the taxes above.
