Gas Tax

For every gallon of gas or diesel purchased, 19.5 cents goes to Missouri state government.

How are the fuel tax collections distributed?
A percentage of fuel tax collections is distributed to cities based on population and to counties based on road mileage and land valuation. The remainder is transferred to the Missouri Department of Transportation. The distribution of motor fuel tax is based uponĀ Article IV, Section 30(a)(b) and (c) of the Missouri Constitution.
