June 6, 1932 : The first federal gasoline tax ( All US States had a gas tax prior to this starting with Oregon in 1919 ) was created with the enactment of the Revenue Act of 1932 with a tax of 1 cent/gal.
Fast forward to today we pay 18.40 cents/gal for gasoline and 24.40 cents/gal for diesel. Rumor has it that our current President is backing a plan to increase the Federal tax by 35 cents/gal and dedicate those funds to fund his infrastructure plans (building "The Wall").
