AP Interview: Transportation secretary says taxing how much we drive may replace gasoline tax — Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood now says he wants to consider taxing us based on how many miles we drive rather than by the gas we purchase. In th efirst place, does that mean that th eFeds are going to place gps devices in our cars so they can track where we drive? And in the second place, I guarantee you that any gasoline taxes the Feds replace will be grabbed by the states, so count on a tax increase if this happens.
