INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI
The Road Usage Charge
The State uses money from its 16-cents-per-gallon gas tax to maintain and fix roads. But the development of more fuel-efficient cars, and electric and hybrid cars, means less money. Now the State wants feedback on a proposal to eliminate the tax and instead levy a per-mile road usage charge, which it says will cost motorists about the same amount.
