This fee is charged per load of 8,000 gallons of gasoline or special fuel. The rate is $150 per load, or whichever of the following applies:
|Corrective Action Fund Balance||Petroleum Products Loading Fee Per 8,000 Gallon Load|

Pay the petroleum products loading fee on the 25th day of the month after the month in which products are loaded or imported into the state.
