The U.S. Energy Department has updated its national eGallon price, which is a way to compare the costs of fueling electric vehicles with the cost of gasoline.

The DOE said the price of fueling an electric vehicle rose to $1.18 per eGallon on July 19, up from $1.14 from earlier in the year.

The DOE noted that plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) sales tripled from 17,000 in 2011 to 52,000 in 2012.

Also, during the first half of 2013, U.S. buyers purchased more than 40,000 PEVs.

    In the calculation of this amount, is there any value/price put on the taxes that are collected on a gallon of gasoline for the Federal, State, and possibly local level that are not included in the electric cost?
