Should Higher Gas Mileage Come With Higher Gas Taxes Too

As average gas-mileage increases to meet higher mileage requirements, less gas used means lower tax revenues (18.4 cents to the Feds on each gallon) to replenish federal and state highway funds unless total miles traveled soars.

Worse, upcoming electric cars don't use any gasoline at all, so they contribute nothing to maintain the roads they use.
