The Oregonian »

This article provides details about the Oregon Department of Transportation’s (ODOT) pilot program to test a vehicle-miles-traveled (VMT) tax and gather public comments about using the VMT tax as a gas tax alternative. ODOT is looking for 5,000 volunteer participants to be charged 1.5 cents per mile traveled. The article also provides a formula for drivers to estimate and compare what they currently pay in gas tax versus what they would pay if the VMT tax was implemented.
