Our Nation's Highways: 2008

Figure 6-2. Highway Trust Fund Receipts, 1970-2006

The fuel tax rates have been changed several times since the highway trust fund was established. Variation in the amount of fuel sales also affects receipts. Fuel tax is collected by the Internal Revenue Service at the fuel refinery level.

Note: Under a Congressional mandate known as the Delayed Deposit Provision, about 5 billion dollars of FY 1998 Highway Trust Fund revenue was delayed until FY 1999.

See paragraph above for explanation of this figure.
