If you are a reader of McHenry County Blog, then you know. Read it right here.
I wonder if the State of Illinois buys it at a retail pump and pays the Federal and sales taxes on each gallon (and then sells it at a loss), or if the highway workers fill those five-gallon cans at the State, tax-free pump. If they do, does it constitute illegal use of tax-free gas? Or is such distribution considered and allowed under tax-free laws?
What will the Great State of Illinois do for you, if you have vehicle trouble?
- Changing tires
- Battery boosts
- Adding coolant*
- Dispensing fuel*
- Transporting customers
- Moving vehicles away from traffic
- Calling for a tow
Gratuities are strictly prohibited. So says the Tollway website, anyway.
If you need help, dial *999, or call 630-241-6800 x5028. H.E.L.P. is available Monday-Friday, 5:00AM-8:00PM.
Remember, the Number 1 Rule on the Tollway or on any highway in the Chicago area is: Be Safe. Stay out of the roadway. If you have a flat, call for help. Trying to change it yourself might just get you killed.
