Natural Gas and Hydrogen Tax

Compressed natural gas (CNG) and hydrogen are taxed at a rate of $0.20 per gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE). Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is taxed at a rate of $0.20 per diesel gallon equivalent (DGE). One GGE is equal to 5.660 pounds (lbs.) of CNG or 2.198 lbs. of hydrogen. One DGE is equal to 6.06 lbs. of LNG. The tax rate for natural gas and hydrogen will be annually adjusted by the State Tax Commission (Commission) not to exceed $0.225 per GGE or DGE. The Commission will publish the adjusted fuel tax no later than 60 days prior to the effective date. For more information, see the Utah State Tax Commission Fuel Tax Rates website.
