Bill Would Tax Electric Cars Per Mile – Are You Really Suprised?

You knew it was just a matter of time, especially in New Jersey, where lawmakers would figure out a way to tax people for saving money on gas.

According to an article, if the proposed bill, S-2531, by Democratic Atlantic County State Senator James Whelan, electric and alternative-fueled cars would be charged a fee of 0.00839  cents per mile traveled. The bill would apply to electric cars but not hybrids.

Electric car owners would pay more than if they were being charged the state’s current 10.5 cents-per-gallon tax and 13.5 cents-per-gallon on diesel fuels.

So what’s your take on the proposed bill? Do you think people with electric cars should be taxed like everyone else or do you think this tax is unfair? Take our poll below and let us know where you stand.
