Vehicle-miles traveled fee vs. fuel tax

Oregon is way ahead when it comes to electric vehicles, VMT fees, and sustainable urban planning.

"The new usage charge pilot program, which began in November and runs through the end of this month, involves about 40 volunteers from state government. Participants chose the tracking plan that best fit their privacy tastes and will pay 1.56 cents for each mile driven — receiving a credit for any gas tax paid during the test period. The idea is to make sure each tracking option works in practice."
