Taxing Mileage?

If you had to choose...
On every gallon of gas you buy, 18.4 cents go to the government. The money helps keep our highways in shape, and part of it also goes to mass transit.

Well, cars are getting better gas mileage, so the government is taking in less money from the federal gas tax. So some lawmakers are batting around the idea of taxing Americans on how many miles they drive - either instead of, or in addition to - the gas that we buy.

The pros and cons are covered on Friday's show, and after you hear them, we'd like to hear your two cents' worth!
