New Study Shows Drivers Prefer Tolls over Taxes, but Columnist Says No Dice

The Washington Post columnist Fredrick Kunkle looks at the results of new study by Indiana State University showing that American motorists prefer tolls to taxes, and says, “That’s odd. I’d take the fuels tax any day — and especially instead of a new mileage tax.” The study looked at five methods of compensating for the decline in fuel tax revenues and found that, “Thirty-four percent would go along with a greater reliance on tolls, while 29 percent would support raising fuel taxes, the researchers found.”
