America 4 $ale
Illinois has just sold one of its toll roads to a company overseas, really, no kidding!
But real soon, gas at the pump will be priced without tax.
As technology improves (using a combo of GPS and EZpass) and this system is being tested as we speak, you will NOT be taxed per gal, YOU will taxed per MILE.
As gas mileage improves the state, city and fed will lose millions in tax revenue, solution: tax us per mile, just think about it. Your little "Speed Pass" is picked-up at the gas pump, it knows how many miles you traveled since your last gas stop and charges your CC or Debt card+the gas per gal price, smooth.
They track your every mile, know when you cross state, city and local lines, how fast your going, oops going to fast, instant speeding ticket! The company that is buying the toll road in IL will be tracking speed and splitting the speeding fines with the state, the state likes it.
But it's all for our own protection, of course.
Ah, it's a brave new world.
