Oregon Next in Line for Electric Car Tax

After Texas state lawmakers decided they had enough of their local electric cars “tearing up the roads” for free, now it’s time for Oregon representatives to worry about EV-related infrastructure development and deterioration.

In case you were wondering, it has something to do with making up for lost gas revenue as well. Since current gasoline tax covers about 60 percent of Oregon’s funding for state, county and city road project, new revenue is more than needed, especially with the increasing number of electric cars seen on the road.

The whole process might be a little easier to implement in Oregon though, since the “Beaver State” can benefit from past electric car experience acquired after being involved with the North to South Electric Pacific Coast Corridor, along Washington State.
