(1) The jump in Fuel Tax Revenue in 2011 and 2012, was due in large part to the change in California's method of taxing fuel. Previously, a sales tax was included in the price of fuel, but not considered fuel tax revenue. The change resulted in the Excise going directly into the fuel tax revenue in 2011 and 2012.

(2) 2014 saw various States increase of motor fuel taxes, and 2015 more fuel use. CA increased from 37 cents to 39.5 cents, CT from 51.2 to 54.9 cents, MA 21 cents to 24 cents, and Wyoming form 14 cents to 24 cents per gallon.
