Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg Says Taxing Drivers by the Mile “Shows a Lot of Promise” and Could be a Way to Fund Infrastructure Overhaul

Buttigieg on Friday said taxing drivers by the mile “shows a lot of promise” and could be a way to fund a big infrastructure overhaul. 

“If we believe in that so-called ‘user-pays principle,’ the idea that part of how we pay for roads is you pay based on how much you drive. The gas tax used to be the obvious way to do it. It’s not anymore,” Buttigieg said during an appearance on CNBC.

So, if they institute a mileage tax, then they will stop collecting the gas tax, right?
