Can the “gas tax” — long a surefire means to fund transportation infrastructure — continue to serve as a primary source of transportation revenue for California? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the gas tax compared to alternatives such as mileage fees, vehicle registration fees and sales taxes? Co-presented by the Mineta Transportation Institute.
