This isnt going to be good for you long liners! Hopefully our PM doesnt get any ideas. If they taxed me per mile it would be a dealbreaker. I live 75-miles from town. The 'good' news just keeps flowing from this administration.

I'll walk. Or ride a horse. Or even better, I'll never buy another new vehicle.

Good luck tracking me.

If you don’t travel they will have a breathing tax if you don’t breath the death tax will come into play.


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

Idiots. The gas tax is supposed to pay for roads. They need to look into what each congressman spends in expenses each year . Fat every where.

"we pursue electrification, sooner or later, there will be questions about whether the gas tax can be effective at all."

Since their goal is the elimination of fossil fuels, they want either everyone to buy electric cars, or move to a place where you can use public transportation. It's all about net zero carbon emissions.

Who and how will they enforce compliance to others like say China? Since China may be doing all the bitcoin mining and using a lot of electricity maybe they will be exempt.

This has been kicked around several years. Mileage tax I believe it was Germany that started it. Illinois is trying to figure out how to squeeze more out with it as well.


�Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves. � � Winston Churchill

People will drive less. This is awesome. Cleaner air and closer to Utopia. (Sarcasm for those that don't get that).

You wont need roads when nobody drives anymore.
Lets all go back to the 1800's.

if it is a replacement for gas tax: great! The freeloading electric cars and the hybrid putt putts have been using the roads paid for by the fuel tax for years. About time they paid their way. Either by a per mile tax or increased license fees.
If it is just another additional tax, well, {unacceptable word}them.
And I'm not putting a tracking device in my vehicle. You can report the mileage on your odometer at the annual renewal. And if you cheat, when you sell or scrap the vehicle, the mileage would be verified against what you claimed.
But who would ever try to cheat the gov't out of paying taxes???

EV's are not even close to net zero carbon emission.

And this article does not consider where the electricity to charge the battery comes from or how it is produced.

Just break your odometer. Can't track your mileage if your odometer doesn't work.

Chicago needs the $$$. How else can we supply free travel to the Exchanges for the world to do business.

In Minnesota they are putting up apartments in nearly uncountable number in the suburbs. Many are stacked over businesses in commercial areas. Closer to work, shopping, entertainment.
Point being I cannot believe overall people are not individually traveling fewer miles per week these days. Add in people working from home not going daily to work. Does this not work in the favor of the earth as is?
