National gas prices are hitting all-time record highs. But it is worse in Illinois, where drivers pay the nation’s second-highest gas taxes.

They got that way in 2019, when Gov. J.B. Pritzker doubled the state gas tax to fund $45 billion in infrastructure and pork projects. Illinois residents now pay nearly 25 cents per gallon more than they did before Pritzker’s tax hike, and on top of record fuel prices.

Illinoisans pay about $1 per gallon, just for taxes.

But those taxes vary even more, depending on where in Illinois you need to fill up. Local and county governments can add local gas taxes. A penny here, a penny there…
