Get Ready To Be Taxed For Every Mile You Drive

Currently, the government charges a tax on all different kinds of fuel. The current federal tax on diesel is 24.4 cents per gallon (state and local taxes bring that up to an average of 54.4 cents per gallon). This money is put towards the maintenance of our nation’s highways.

According to the Federal Highway Administration, there are two types of vehicles who do not pay their fair share under this system: hybrid vehicles and trucks. Both cause a disproportionate amount of wear and tear to the road relative to the amount they pay in fuel taxes. The solution being proposed? Stop taxing the fuel and start taxing the miles.
