WA Policy Center’s Mariya Frost: Mileage tax could include variable pricing (audio interview)

After Cascade Media released its Crosscut Elway Poll this week, Mariya Frost, transportation analyst for the Washington Policy Center, was not surprised to find that a road usage charge — a mileage tax for each driver based on miles traveled in a year — is not a popular one.

Fifty-five percent of respondents opposed a mileage tax as a replacement for the current gas tax, while just 32 percent supported it.
