TCA supports an increased fuel tax, coupled with indexing the tax to inflation, to increase revenue for the Highway Trust Fund, yet we also recognize that relying on fuel tax revenue for future infrastructure needs will cause a long-term funding gap with the growing use of electric and other fuel-efficient vehicles. The vehicle miles traveled tax (VMT) has been discussed at the state and federal levels as an alternative taxation method for electric, hybrid, and other fuel efficient vehicles for their impact on the highways and to recover future revenue shortfalls in the Highway Trust Fund.

Please see below for shareable graphics to help TCA spread the word.
