How is it that 1 or 2 cents per mile will cover the current fuel taxes? Simple math:
Let's take the average: 1.5 cents per mile. My car does 26 miles a gallon on average, so that's 39 cents a gallon, compared to the current 18.5 cents per gallon, that's a nice 110% tax increase. I like how the government sneaks in additional taxes as a new way of collecting existing taxes!
Just my 0.02 cents per mile.
