The west coast solution seems to be a road tax on miles driven. Problem is some people like me don't want their car usage tracked by government. The Michigan approach is to add $100 to the annual plate fee for EVs because they don't have gas taxes, and $30 to hybrids because they're presumed to pay less gas tax. _______________________________________ http://www.okiebenz.com To search list archives http://www.okiebenz.com/archive/ To Unsubscribe or change delivery options go to: http://mail.okiebenz.com/mailman/listinfo/mercedes_okiebenz.com
