Instead of paying the normal gas tax embedded in the price of fuel, OReGO drivers will pay 1.5 cents for every mile on the road. The initial public rollout is limited to 5,000 vehicles, but the implications of the program are vast: if all goes well, state and federal leaders might have an answer to the transportation funding crisis that’s hampered American infrastructure for years.
Oregon is testing a per-mile driving fee to help fund their infrastructure. Do you think NJ should try this too? The Transportation Trust Fund (#NJTTF) is nearly bankrupt and our roads and bridges are in need of repair.
