Gas Tax Losers

Wanna see if your region gets the short end of the stick? Check out Gas Tax Losers.

A few examples: for every gas tax dollar to the feds

Austin gets 76 cents
SF gets $1.44
LA gets 87 cents
Columbus OH 66 cents

It seems like if you have a transit system, you get real money back.

This is only a small part of the story - most states do a much better job of spreading state gas tax revenue around than does Texas. I figure we get back about 33 cents on the state gas tax dollar here, seat of the pants estimate.
