SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — California is moving closer to charging drivers for every mile they drive.The state says it needs more money for road repairs, and the gas tax just isn’t bringing in enough revenue.
But wait! That’s not all!
But it’s not just a question about money, it’s also a question about fairness.
State Senator Scott Wiener and others are saying that when it comes to road taxes, it’s time to start looking at charging you by the mile rather than by the gallon.
“If you own an older vehicle that is fueled by gas, you’re paying gas tax to maintain the roads. Someone who has an electric vehicle or a dramatically more fuel efficient vehicle is paying much less than you are. But they are still using the roads,” Wiener said.
OUCH! Remember all that money you thought you were saving by having a fuel-efficient/hybrid/electric vehicle? Well, you also have to pay the California Tax Piper, bitch. Wait, you really thought it was about the Environment and clean air?
