Taxpayers In What State Pay The Most in Road Taxes and Fees?

If you think you pay a lot in taxes to keep up our state's roads, take comfort in that you don't pay as much as the folks in Delaware. Drivers there pay a bigger share of the state and local costs of keeping up roads than those in any other state, according to a new report from the Tax Foundation.

Tolls, state gas taxes and fees for licenses and registrations covered 79 cents out of every dollar Delaware spent on roads in 2011, the latest year for which data is available.

How do northwest states, and all other states compare? Stateline has the numbers.
