Cato Senior Fellow Randal O’Toole spoke at a Hill Briefing on April
15, 2011. He recommended ending the gas tax and replacing it with a
Vehicle Miles Traveled tax as a way of making the public funding of
roads and highways more efficient and based on user fees, not taxes
and subsidies. He also looks forward to a future with driverless
cars, as long as America’s aging transportation bureaucracy gets
out of the way.
