Could a Mileage Tax Replace the Gas Tax?

 

Will a Mileage Tax Replace the Gas Tax? – NYTimes.com.

This article is a bit dated, but I have heard about the possibility of a VMT (“vehicle miles traveled”) fee to replace the tax on gas come up in several different places lately.  What do you think about the switch? Is it a good idea, in and of itself?  Could it work here in Georgia?

What “Positive Externalities” might be associated with such a switch?  Does that make you more inclined to support such a change?
