Fuel Taxes

Excise tax:

  • Compressed natural gas (CNG): 5 cents-per-GGE (increasing Jan. 1, 2020 to diesel fuel rate).
  • Liquid natural gas (LNG): 5 cents-per-DGE (increasing Jan. 1, 2020 to diesel fuel rate).

Excise tax on all other special fuels: Pursuant to Sections 703, 705, 707.1, 707.2 and 707.3 of Title 68 a combined tax rate of 16 cents-per-gallon is levied on special fuels.

Fee: Instead of paying the excise tax, special fuel vehicle operators, in accordance with 68 O.S. § 723(C), can choose to pay an annual flat fee of $150 for a decal, excusing them from payment of the excise tax. An out-of-date decal is penalized with an increase of 20 percent of the fee. The fee and any applicable penalty amounts collected for this decal are apportioned to the State Transportation Fund.

Fee/Tax in addition to Gas Excise Tax: Environmental fee (1 cent-per-gallon).

*Federal funding percentages are from an ARTBA analysis of FHWA Highway Statistics data, total ten year average 2004-2013 from tables SF-1 and SF-2. The percent is the ratio of federal aid reimbursements to the state and total state capital outlays and is indicative of the importance of the federal aid program to state capital spending for highways and bridges. Does not include local capital spending. Federal highway reimbursements are primarily used for capital outlays, including construction, right of way and engineering, but are also used for debt service for GARVEE bonds.
