WOW ... surely that can't be true .... you are joking right?
As cars become more fuel efficient, revenues from gasoline taxes fall, and cash strapped states look to other ways to make money.
The idea of "a per mile" tax or roadway toll tracking system aren't new, but the movement is gathering more steam.
Not only that, they can charge you extra for driving into congested areas, at rush hour, etc to encourage "traffic control" or alternative forms of transport.
