By nature, economy cars are lighter and much easier on the roads. Gas guzzlers tend to be heavier and put more wear and tear on the roads, more gas burnt = more money spent on a gas tax, which should
be going to repair the roads. IMO the US should have the balls
to do what Europe has been doing for years, have something like a $1 to $2 tax/gallon on fuel, make the burners of lots of fuel actually pay to maintain the road and owners of smaller/lighter vehicles that are much easier on the road, pay less of a tax.
Will this ever happen in the US, HELL no!
I guess I'm OK with some sort of EV tax but I thought one of the points of wanting people to go EV was less pollution in the air/our cities, having a high EV tax kind of goes against that, at least IMO
