Abstract: In this thesis, the puzzle of the United State's comparatively low gasoline tax rate is considered. Following a historical review of the development of the American gasoline tax over the previous 86 years, an explanation based on interests, values, institutions, and historic happenstance is offered. Anti-gasoline-tax-actors are abnormally numerous in the United States, and uniquely American ideological trends fuel a political environment that is hostile to substantial gasoline tax increases. Further, the division of power and the decision making process, both within and between federal and state governments, have had the effect of making the passage of gasoline tax increases a politically more demanding process in the United States than in other industrialized democracies. These two attributes, combined with the pluralist system of interest articulation and key political decisions that have strengthened anti-gasoline-tax-actors, explain the stark difference in tax rate seen internationally and the exceptional American expenence.
