Welcome to the age of what comes AFTER gasoline taxes.

Fuel taxes pay for road repair and maintenance... or did. 

The advent of hybrid and straight-electric vehicles reduces per-capita fuel consumption, and road funds with it.   

Oregon is just now rolling out OReGO, its voluntary program for drivers to pay road taxes by miles traveled. 

OreGO's Michelle Godfrey explains how the program works, and what is required of participants.
