And the news is:......

....additional taxes for fuel efficient vehicles.

Heard today that several states, Oregon being the first, are implementing or considering implementing a charge (tax) on vehicles that get 55 mpg or more because they are losing revenue from gas tax. it is not understood at this time if it will be a flat tax, or a tax on each mile driven.

That just plain sucks, and I don't have a car like that. Maybe they should consider giving us RV'ers with 9 MPG or less a rebate. Guess they never thought of that.

Happy (maybe) trails.

But those vehicles weigh less and cause very little wear compared to a large sedan, so it would seem no extra tax...what about based on pounds on the road...

Well, I thought the point of having a car like that was to economize & be environmentally friendly. Sheesh...can they make up their minds?
