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 high- ways. For some States, data are not comparable to prior years due to changes in data analysis and/or improve- ments in 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/ Tax rates are as of December 31, 2011.

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.
