Federal Fuel Tax and Implementing Alternative Vehicle Pricing Mechanisms
This webcast investigates the institutional structure of the current gasoline tax at the federal level including historical changes, how the tax is collected, and how it is allocated and disbursed to fund infrastructure projects. It also examines design choices for road pricing programs. The analysis finds opportunities for integrating technology across multiple pricing programs - by relying on overlapping systems, programs can be implemented more efficiently and provide tremendous cost savings.
