I recently read a news story about states planning to impose a mileage tax levy to make up for lost gas tax revenue caused by hybrid vehicles and more fuel efficient vehicles. The idea is to use GPS technology to track mileage transmitted by your car to the gas pump which will calculate the tax owed. We could be paying a gas tax and a mileage tax in the near future, especially when cars are going to be required to have greater per gallon mileage (as much as 55 miles per gallon). There are plans for third party vendors to be used to calculate and collect taxes owed and pass it to governments.
