NC drivers could be charged by the mile; NCDOT hears proposal

The proposal would be to charge .5-cents-per-mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue.

At issue are falling state gas tax revenues in part because of more fuel-efficient cars requiring less gas. North Carolina drivers currently pay one of the highest gas taxes in the nation.

Some state leaders say the more drivers use their car, the more they should pay, because more cars rolling cause more wear and tear on the state’s roads.
