1/ This table includes data on all motor fuels subject to State motor-fuel taxes except special fuels (fuels other than gasoline and gasohol) used for nonhighway purposes. It is not intended to reflect the amount of fuel used on highways. For some States, data are not comparable to prior years due to changes in data analysis and/or improvements n reporting procedures. All data are subject to further review and revision.

2/ Export sales and other amounts not consumed as motor fuel in the State have been excluded wherever possible.

3/ Includes Federal use, other public use, certain transit use, nonhighway use where initial exemptions rather than refunds were made, and allowances for evaporation and other losses.

4/ For tax rates as of January 1, 1998 and rate changes during the year, see table MF-121T. States with variable rates are also identified in table MF-121T.

5/ In some States, fuel used for specific purposes is taxed or refunded at rates other than the prevailing rates shown in Table MF-121T. In the case of aviation fuel, only aviation gasoline is included.

6/ Vehicles consuming special fuels and paying mileage tax to the Public Utility Commissioner are not required to pay the motor-fuel tax. Fuel volume reported here includes only the volume on which the motor-fuel tax has been paid. For total highway use of special fuels, see table MF-21.
