
GAS TAX is not sustainable. We must diversity our
sources of revenue

Tolling a policy that all new capacity on interstates and
expressways shall be tolled where feasible or at the very
least tolls should complement traditional funding in
delivering improvements and new capacity

A Few Observations Toward the Future

States collectively spend about $10 billion in federal
funds each year on the Interstate System

The current annual shortfall in the Highway Trust Fund is
about $10 billion

A toll of about 2¢ per mile for cars and 4¢ per mile for
trucks for travel on the Interstate System would generate
about $16 billion annually

The toll from Jacksonville, FL to Pittsburg, PA would be
about $16 for cars and $32 for trucks – a trip to Seattle,
WA would be about $60 for cars and $120 for trucks

So . . . should the future preservation and capacity needs
of the Interstate System be funded through tolls?
