Q P S D Q 0 * = Q 1 * P 0 *=P 1 *+T P 1 * Amount consumers pay for gas Amount producers receive D-T CS PS TAX REVENUE d. It’s easiest to model this tax as a shift back in the demand curve for gasoline. As the graph above shows, the amount that consumers pay for gasoline is the same before and after the tax (P 0 *=P 1 *), and the amount that producers receive goes down by the exact amount of the tax (from P 0 * to P 1 *). There is no change in the equilibrium quantity of gasoline bought and sold on the market.
