Oregon to launch program taxing drivers by the mile

 In 2015 Oregon is set to launch a 5,000 volunteer pilot program that will tax drivers 1.5 cents per mile driven. This new program will eventually replace the existing 30 cents per-gallon gas tax, which the state says has generated less funds than expected as Americans drive less and vehicles become more fuel efficient. As more states begin to consider similar programs groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union worry about privacy violations that may occur while the government monitors driving habits using black box technology and smart phone apps.
