    REALLY!!! $200 gas tax.

    Let’s face it. The federal gas tax hasn’t been raised in over 30 years. State gas taxes likewise haven’t kept up with inflation. Nobody is paying enough to cover the cost of road maintenance. Mass transit in much of the US is horribly uneconomic based on ridership. There are no easy answers but...

    REALLY!!! $200 gas tax.

    Yes and they drive on less travelled roads, so the cost per vehicle-mile is dramatically higher. Who wrote the press release?

    REALLY!!! $200 gas tax.

    What a complicated mess! You have to step back and say “what are we trying to accomplish and what is politically possible?” Currently we have a gas tax on ICE’s that hasn’t been raised in thirty years plus we pay tolls on some roads so that is double dipping.

    Long Term Leaf Storage

    I don’t know whether to start a new thread, but I’m thinking of buying a used leaf with 45+ miles of range as a second car that we’d use 6 months a year and let it sit 6 months. Good idea? I tried to talk my 93 yr old MIL into buying one for $2500. Now I can’t find one at that price.

    Long Term Leaf Storage
