Explanation

The amendment caps the wholesale price for purposes of calculating the Petroleum Gross Earnings Tax at $3.40 per gallon. This will preclude a General Fund revenue gain if the average wholesale price for gasoline exceeds $3.40. The current FY 09 estimate for the tax assumes that the average wholesale price of gasoline will be $3.40 per gallon.

The preceding Fiscal Impact statement is prepared for the benefit of the members of the General Assembly, solely for the purposes of information, summarization and explanation and does not represent the intent of the General Assembly or either chamber thereof for any purpose.
