I know of a handful of states that are looking to implement a Vehicle Mileage Tax, in hopes of replacing that tax with the under-performing and current gas tax. Looks as though Maryland, California, Oregon, Washington and Nevada are the stages that are already in the prelim status of doing this, or are on the brink.
Do you think this is a good idea? I suppose the reasoning is to find a way to get more tax revenue for road construction, bridges, infrastructure, etc.. where the gas tax has dropped the ball, thanks in large part to much more fuel efficient vehicles and the recent drop in oil barrels and gas prices at the pump.
How about it? Would you rather gas at the pump not be taxed at all, and instead have a meter in your car that tallies your every mile and taxes you accordingly? Or would you rather keep it the way that it is? If you live in one of the states above (as I do not) have they already tried this on you yet? Does it work? I know that the West Coast states were months away from starting this, when I read up on it. Thoughts?
