State Taxes

North Carolina will raise their fuel tax by 4 cents January 1 to 38 cents per gallon. Combine the federal tax, and we are in the top 5 fuel taxed folks in the country.

If I drive 10 miles from my office to South Carolina I can save $9 a tank for diesel.

On booze, I pay $52 for a half gallon of Makers Mark in NC. In SC it is $42 for the same bottle.

SC here I come in 2012.

That's a $19 savings, if both tanks empty about the same time.

They constantly add tax to petrol and booze here - most of what we pay goes to the government!

Many go to France for cheaper beer and wine...
