Motor fuels tax. Modifies the rates of taxation on motor fuels to be the greater of (i) the current specific cents-per-gallon rates or (ii) percentage rates, 7.3% for gasoline and gasohol, and 6.5% for diesel. The percentage rates would be applied against the average price per gallon of the fuel, less federal and state taxes, as determined by the Commissioner of the Division of Motor Vehicles over rolling six-month periods.
