Actually AS A TEMPORARY MEASURE in 2008 this was not a bad idea. It's neither something that we should do often or even routinely because gas taxes pay for roads and now since mileage is getting better the road budgets are getting shorter, but for that one summer I could have supported it. We also need a new funding stream for the Highway system because electric cars are not using gasoline but they are using the roads. I don't have an answer, but it's something we need to think on...
