"If you take a walk, I'll tax the street."

As long as we're going to find new ways to tax people for using less gasoline, why not create a pedestrian tax, a bicycle tax, and a mass-transit tax SPECIFIC to those people who are obviously cutting into revenues from actual gasoline sales?

In fact, why don't we just track people themselves (GPS device implanted at birth) and tax them for every mile they move, regardless of the means of transportation!

This is nothing new, of course. Gas taxes were raised when fuel efficient cars started becoming available as early as the 1960's, and maybe even before that, when construction started on the interstate highway system.
