U.S. Roads Are In Terrible Shape: How Would You Fix Them? Page 2

Follow Richard


Peg the tax to inflation or some other rate? Modifying the gas tax so that it's pegged to another cost might not be seen as "adding" a new tax but "restructuring" an existing one, which could go over better with voters. The question is: how would it work best? Some suggest making the tax move up (and down) in direct correlation to inflation or the Consumer Price Index, though there are a lot of possibilities -- and few provide stable, consistent revenue.

It's a given that U.S. roads have to be maintained, and it's also a given that our government is responsible for maintaining them. How would you suggest we solve this growing problem? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
