New Report: Who Pays for Roads?

Many Americans believe that drivers pay the full cost of the roads they use through gas taxes and other user fees. That has never been the case, and it is less true today than ever. Increasingly, American taxpayers are bearing more of the burden of paying for building, maintaining and operating our roads, regardless of how much they drive. Who Pays for Roads? exposes how long-running myths about how America pays for transportation continue to distort transportation policy, and argues for thorough reform of how the United States raises and spends transportation funds. (Photo credit: Highway interchange in Los Angeles: P_Wei, iStock.)
