For purposes of this contract, the counterparties agree that the following Market Disruption Event shall apply: Tax Event, provided that such Tax Event shall be defined as follows: the imposition of, change in, or removal of, an excise, severance, sales, use, value-added, environmental, emissions, transfer, stamp, documentary, recording or similar tax on, or measured by reference to, gasoline (other than a tax on, or measured by reference to overall gross or net income) by or at the direction of the federal government (or any agency or organ thereof) after the Trade Date, if the direct effect of such imposition, change or removal is to raise (a "Tax Increase") or lower (a "Tax Decrease") the Floating Price from what it would have been without that imposition, change or removal.
