Commission Proposes Fuel Tax Increase


The US needs to sig­nif­i­cant­ly rebuild its infra­struc­ture, and the cost will require 5 — 8% more fuel tax­es accord­ing to the major­i­ty of the Nation­al Sur­face Trans­porta­tion Pol­i­cy and Rev­enue Study Com­mis­sion. DOT Sec­re­tary Peters dis­agrees and has pro­posed that pri­vate cap­i­tal, incen­tives and increased tolls are bet­ter sources of the need­ed rev­enue.
