State EV fees are often comparable with how much owners of traditional gas-powered cars pay in gas taxes. A driver of a typical 2021 model year vehicle covering 15,000 miles annually pays about $227 in state gas taxes in Ohio or $184 in Georgia.
The states charging the highest annual EV fees are Washington ($225), Georgia ($211) and Alabama ($203), Money’s analysis found. Four other states charge $200 extra annually from EV owners: Arkansas, Ohio, West Virginia and Wyoming.
Most (but not all) of the states with the highest EV fees are red or red-leaning politically. In total, more than 30 states have extra fees for EV drivers, and the list will surely grow as states like Kentucky implement fees in the future.
