U.S. gasoline cost breakdown

The end price that consumers pay for gasoline in the United States is made up from several different costs. As of March 2019, 56 percent of what United States consumers paid per gallon of gasoline was attributable to the cost of crude oil. The rest of the price included costs associated with refining, distribution and marketing, and taxes. The West Coast region of the U.S. had to pay the highest gasoline taxes out of all the regions in the United States, paying 47.21 cents per gallon as of April 2018. In that time period, the southern region of the U.S. paid the lowest gasoline taxes.
