Depending on where you live, you could be spending a lot of your gas money on taxes.

On Friday, 24/7 Wall Street published a report that found the states with the highest and lowest gas taxes.

According to the website, the federal gas tax is 18.4 cents per gallon, but states can add their own excise tax as well.

Depending on where you live, state gas taxes can be anywhere between 5 percent up to 20 percent of the total cost of gas, 24/7 Wall Street said.
