Windfall Profits?

Here is a spreadsheet of the federal & state gasoline taxes (more comprehensive spreadsheet here[1]). The average amount of taxes paid on a gallon of gas is 46.8 cents per gallon. The average price of gas is $2.87 per gallon. Looks like the government is profiteering off the backs of Americans again. Nuff said...
