New Tax Boosts
State’s Daily Gas
Bill To $6,780.00
One Cent A Gallon Tax On Gaso
line WIU Yield Income Of $5,
When lining station operators all
over the state moved up the price of
gasoline at midnight March 31 to
take care of the additional one cent
tax imposed by the legislature to
become effective April 1, they ad
ded $8,870 a day to the total sum
Tar Heels pay for their gas.
Based on estimates that each one
cent a gallon tax on gasoline will
yield $2,500,000 a year, the five
cent tax which became effective
today will return Just short of $35,
000 a day to the state treasury, or
a total of twelve and one-hall'
million dollars a year. With gaso
line selling at 1$ cents a gallon less
[the tax. the same course of calcu
j lation shows that North Carolinians
are spending between 55 and 60
millions a year for their motor
This is approximately double the
amount spent In manning and
maintaining the entire public school
system of the state for one year.
The gasoline tax is the highest
tax collected by the state. At pres
ent price levels it amounts to ap
proximately 28 per cent—or a round
fifty-cent piece every time a mo
torist gets 10 gallons of gasoline
put into his tank. He pays $1.80
for the gas and $0.50 for the tax.
But kicks on the tax, high though
it is, are practically none. The rea
son: every cent of It goes into road
construction and maintenance, and
on & good road, as every motorist
knows, a gallon of gas will go much
further than on a poor road that
he actually gets more for his
money out of the tax-burdened gas
than he would were there no gas
tax and only mud roads.
Until this year, proceeds from the
gas tax, which was inaugurated at
1 cent a gallon in 1921, have gone to
building and maintaining state
roads only. Now that system is
nearing completion, and the pro
ceeds from the old 4-cent tax are
ample to provide for its mainten
ance and for retiring the $115,0000,
000 In bonds Issued to build the
state road system.
The 1-cent boost was added to
aid the counties in maintaining
their roads, heretofore kept up sole
ly from revenue from ao valorem

lx; realized from the lxx»t, half a
million will be added from other
highway revenues. giving a total ot
$3,000 000 lor comity road maln
