Dear John: Good article on raising the gas tax to fund infrastructure repair.But think of the future as the government must. When vehicles are all electric, where will the infrastructure funds come from?
I worked for a guy who has a new Tesla. The technology is amazing.His commute went from $80 in fuel to a $3 a month increase in his electric bill. And it parks itself in the garage.
It has a range of 300 miles. The new source of funds for the roads will have to come from E-ZPass. You go crosstown for a haircut, and 50 cents goes on your E-ZPass. A.S.
Dear A.S. Oh, I have all the confidence in the world that our government will find a way to tax us in an era of electric, non-polluting vehicles. How about this? A tax on the cleaner air we breathe.
