Mississippi has the 44th-lowest gas tax in the nation, at 18.38 cents per gallon. Shoppers may feel a pinch at the supermarket, though -- Mississippi is one of seven states that provide no exemption or reduced sales tax rate on grocery items. Rest assured, death won’t bring a higher state tax bill. Mississippi doesn't have an estate or inheritance tax.
