AP: 50-cent gas tax and GPS monitoring system proposed

Please read the AP article about the proposed gas tax increase that the National Commission on Surface Transportation Infrastructure Financing would like to pass:

However, what i found interesting in the article was the proposed GPS system they would like to have all vehicles have in order to have the tax based on actual mileage used. The author of this article also states that those that would like this to pass think it should be called a carbon tax because it would be better accepted.
