What am I paying for in the price of a gallon of gasoline?

It all adds up.

High octane part:

So how much does the government make on a gallon of gas?

In this example, retailers collected state and federal gasoline taxes of 39 cents per gallon on average. Total gas taxes per gallon range by state – from lows of less than 30 cents per gallon to highs of more than 60 cents per gallon in places like New York and California.

Those evil oil companies.  How dare they collect a small fraction of what the government takes.  Clearly, they must be punished.
