February 25, 1919
Oregon passes first gasoline tax
Anyone who drives a motor vehible is aware of the high price of fuel these days. Part of that price is a gasoline tax. On February 25, 1919, Oregon passed the nation's first gasoline tax to support the building and maintenance of highways. Today, there's a gasoline tax in every state. And not to be left out, the federal government has joined them.
