You must have not read the 1200 page Biden Administration Infrastructure trillion dollar bill. It has a provision to charge you per mile, they are already headed into that direction.The other issue is the loss of gas taxes. People who drive EV's aren't paying gas taxes which is where the funds come from for maintaining the roads and highway infrastructure. I think it's either Washington or Oregon that has, or is trying to implement a mileage tax, where you have to pay per mile you drive. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to predict that there's going to be a charging tax, or some kind of tax levied on EV owners so they can pay their 'fair share' of taxes to help maintain everything. Only in their case, it goes beyond roads; it includes the cost of adding and maintaining the power grid which is something that isn't an issue with gasoline. Gas station owners carry the responsibility of maintaining their stations. If gas station owners were given incentives to add solar power to help offset the load on the power grid, that would be good, but then they'll be charging a fee of some kind to help cover their costs.
Nothing is free. Somebody has to pay somewhere.
THE SENATE’S $1.2 TRILLION bipartisan infrastructure bill proposes a national test program that would allow the government to collect drivers’ data in order to charge them per-mile travel fees. The new revenue would help finance the Highway Trust Fund, which currently depends mostly on fuel taxes to support roads and mass transit across the country.
Under the proposal, the government would collect information about the miles that drivers travel from smartphone apps, another on-board device, automakers, insurance companies, gas stations, or other means. For now, the initiative would only be a test effort — the government would solicit volunteers who drive commercial and passenger vehicles — but the idea still raises concerns about the government tracking people’s private data
