Most people don't make decisions like that. They just see "cheaper" gasoline and buy a bigger car. That's happening right now.

Taxing gasoline more leads to less gasoline use. Taxing roads leads to less road use. But the 2 don't affect each other much. Not to mention the atrocious assault on our privacy for tracking where we drive for a road tax.
