There is also 18.4 cent federal tax per gallon of gasoline in the US, which is long overdue for an increase.

In the past, a tax on fuel worked for keeping roads in repair. Drive more and you bought more fuel, and heavier trucks were less efficient. With plug ins, this isn't going to work going forward, even with increasing the rates on fuel.

In the UK, after they have added Fuel Tax to the price of petrol they then add VAT (Value Added Tax, a form of Purchase Tax) so we are taxed on the tax we pay!

Yea then we pay road tax based on vehicle emissions (and list price in some cases) which is supposed to be used to fix roads, even though the government only spends a tiny percentage on doing so...

I believe, California adds their general sales tax to fuel in addition to their fuel tax.

In some states, the registration fee for a car includes a property tax based on its value. If those states also add a hybrid and/or plug in fee, they seem to forget that those cars are paying a higher property tax because the those cars are higher value than an ICE one.
