No one has mentioned road construction or maintenance funding. I have not read or heard a single thing about how road funding will be generated from the all electricity used to recharge all the million's of EV passenger car's and EV commercial truck's that will be charged at homes and commercial location's in some peoples near future.
Maybe not in this thread yet but has been discussed ad nauseum in other posts.

Personally I think the roads can be maintained through general income and sales taxes as they are a bit more progressive. Petrol tax can be shifted to cleaning up the environment.
I think the word you're looking for is "regressive", not progressive.

My state charges an additional fee for annual road registration if you own a BEV. They are testing GPS trackers which actually log how many miles you travel within the state - Now that’s big brother watching you since they can tell where and when you are at any time.


I like the idea of a tracker, I would have that sucker wrapped in aluminum foil in a heartbeat.

Yes sales tax alone is considered regressive. That is why the basics are often excluded. Income tax is progressive.
Fuel tax would seem to be more like sales tax so I believe it is regressive.

Personally I prefer consumption taxes because then those who make the most purchases pay the lion's share of the tax.

But, normally I'm on the down side of the consumption graph. Furnishing my retirement condo has been an eye opener.
