Nobody particularly likes taxes, but as they go, gas tax is at least generally fair in how it's applied.
The more gas you use, the more you pay. Use less, or none at all, and you pay less--or nothing.
Virginia residents will soon be paying nothing even if they drive gas guzzlers, as Governor Bob McDonnell has proposed dropping the state's gasoline tax, the revenues from which he describes as becoming "stagnant".
The extra revenue must come from somewhere though, so the proposal includes an increase in sales tax of 0.8 cents on the dollar, a $15 registration fee for every new car--and a $100 annual fee for plug-in and hybrid cars (similar to that of Washington state, but penalizing hybrids too), to make up for all that gas tax nobody else will be paying.
