GAO: : "HIGHWAY TRUST FUND Nearly All States Received More Funding Than They Contributed in Highway Taxes Since 2005"

This seems improbable. It is because non HTF funds are being redistributed to the states from the Treasury. That is, the money comes from general revenue. That is, it comes from the people and the states. Figure 6 (shown to the right) is probably a more accurate portrayal than the headline quote. The States rich in Senators per capita get an "equity bonus".
