WASHINGTON—Resources for the Future (RFF) today posted a new fuel price calculator that estimates the impacts of a US carbon tax on the prices of various types of fossil fuels. This calculator allows users to translate different carbon tax levels into price changes for various fossil fuels. For example, a $40 carbon tax would increase gasoline prices on average by 36 cents.
In September, RFF introduced its first carbon tax calculator that reports estimates for carbon dioxide emissions and tax revenues for various carbon tax price paths.
