farmers do not have to pass that cost onto their customers

Yeah, and maybe I have it backwards. Perhaps they pay for their state excise taxes but are able to claim rebates from the state they purchase from if they are paying the taxes to the other states they're driving through. Considering their tanks are hundreds of gallons, they have the ability to entirely pass through multiple states without buying gas.
Either way I know it was important for them to do this as it related heavily to the taxes of exactly where they were and what state they were using the gas in. Hence, the bean counters were watching *this* very heavily, you know the bean counters will try to optimize anywhere else they can if it saves a dime.
I may be wrong, but I am betting that the states are tracking wages being paid while the driver is in their state as opposed to fuel taxes which are paid at the pump. When a driver is being paid to drive thru a state, the state would like to tax that driver for the amount they were paid. This is done with other professions, I can see the states attempting to do this with truck drivers also.

I'd like to see Delaware or Rhode Island do this.   Delaware dude:  You traveled across the entire stretch of I-95 in our fair state.   You spent 28 minutes in our state.  Ok, you owe us.......one dollar and eighty two cents.

heck, just make ALL interstate highways toll - put up the electronic sensors(cameras) and send anyone driving on the highway a bill for their miles of use.

That way, folks buying gasoline or diesel fuel for boats, dirt bikes,  lawn mowers, golf carts, generators, or anything else with an internal combustion  engine aren't paying for the highway system they might not be using.

Sounds awesome.

Then we can put a tracking device on every car that fines us automatically for moving violations. 

Increase revenue, while cutting costs on police cars and traffic cop salaries.

Welp, this weather pattern we've been stuck in since March 1 - the one with no end in sight - has taken its toll.

Met with a realtor yesterday. We will be listing after Labor Day. We give up.

Uncle.

Freezing rain with snow coming later. This is super.

Hasn't stopped raining since Friday. Again, super. I guess I can be thankful I'm not in Minnesota, for today anyway.
