We pay about £1.25 per litre at the pump for unleaded petrol. About 2/3 of that is tax and duty, paid straight to the government. Not a lot of that goes to maintain our road system. Taking the tax away is not a choice; we pay tax at the pump or we walk.

A litre is a little more than 1/4 of a US Gallon, by the way. So it looks like we pay duty and tax of about $4(US) per US gallon.
