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. Join the discussion on the Road Usage Charge on INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI. You can phone in, or leave us a comment on Facebook or Twitter.
