  1. In response to the Boxer idea, let me see if I get it straight: instead of directly charging people who use the roads to pay for the roads, instead impose the tax on all wholesale purchasers of oil, including those who buy oil for purposes like heating and other non-transportation-related purposes? Not sure if that makes a lot of sense in terms of supporting a “user fee” philosophy of funding roads. But maybe I’m not interpreting correctly.

    Also, let it be known I believe a VMT tax would be ideal for funding roads, rather than a gas tax.
