The abundance of locally processed gas and the total absence of any state gas taxes aside from an excise tax make trips to the pump highly affordable. The state is also home to the Louisiana Offshore Oil Port, which, according to the EIA, is the nation’s only port for offloading deep draft oil tankers.
