10. The problem with the tax on electricity

is the question of how much of it goes to the roads. The gas tax is supposed to support maintenance and updates to the road infrastructure, the electricity tax is not. So while there is a tax on the electricity, how much of it goes to maintain the roads that the EV wears out?



And, why is it not mentioned that electric car owners would be "fueling up" from the electric grid, which is already taxed! So the revenue generated from fueling up at the pump would not be lost, only transferred to the electric grid tax.
