Gas tax versus electric vehicles
In this day and age when car makers are making more and more electric vehicles, what happens to the gas tax revenue that we will be losing? Here goes, tolls! I'm in favor of tolls just for that reason.
The only thing is, why, if we get tolls, do we think that we must make as much revenue as quickly as possible? I don't have any facts or figures to back up anything I say. Make tolls affordable. That should keep tourists happy. It also should replace, if not exceed, the revenue lost by fewer gasoline powered vehicles. At least think about it.
