Fuel tax revenues from light duty vehicles to the Highway Trust Fund (HTF) are expected to be reduced by $2.8 billion a year by 2025 (a 12% reduction).

Alternative Fuels and Increased MPG are Having an Unexpected Effect on Revenue

  • Annual obligations for HTF outlays will exceed revenues by $10 - $13 billion annually through 2023.
  • Even if fuel taxes are raised to stabilize the Highway Trust Fund in the short term, the revenue source of the past will prove unstable and insufficient in the decades ahead.
