Oregon, Too, Wants To Tax Electric Cars (And 55-MPG-Plus Cars Too): Electric car-friendly Oregon may join the...

Taxing the efficiency you are promoting is a bad idea. Tax needs to be increased and calculated as a percentage of cost on every gallon of fuel destined for highway usage, not x.xx amount per gallon.
