New Federal Law to Reduce Autogas Tax
Arro Autogas is proud to report that on Friday, July 31, 2015, President Obama signed into law a bill making it easier for all Americans to use propane autogas. Included in the extension of the highway bill, the excise tax equalization provision permanently reduces the tax rate on propane autogas and levels the playing field for all alternative fuels. The tax will go from $0.183 cents to $0.132 cents, which is a savings of $0.051 cents per gallon on propane Federal Excise Road Tax.
Rick Roldan, National Propane Gas Association's President and CEO applauded Congress for their action saying, "NPGA is very pleased that Congress acted decisively on this issue, making it easier for every American to choose a clean, abundant, and domestic alternative fuel. Propane is the world's third most common engine fuel, and the United States is producing more of it than ever before. Parity in the fuel tax system will help put more alternative fuel vehicles on the road, which is a good thing for America."
Excise tax equalization alters the calculation for the excise tax levied against propane used as an auto fuel to be based on an energy content rather than the current volumetric calculation. Due to the lower energy content of propane compared to gasoline, this will result in lower excise taxes being levied on propane used in auto fuel applications.
The tax reduction takes effect January 1, 2016.

Proven Propane Success
When your district is considering purchasing a school bus, a few things are typically considered. Although initial cost is important, many forward-thinking districts are asking additional questions. How much capacity should our bus provide? How long will it last? What kind of lifetime savings can we expect?
Many districts have found that the answer is simple: Propane Autogas. Propane-powered school buses are saving thousands of dollars each year in fuel costs alone for school districts nationwide. Coupled with the savings they experience in maintenance costs, the total cost of ownership for these buses is much lower than a typical diesel-powered bus.
