by: Denvil Duncan and John D. Graham
Do Americans Support or Oppose Them?
Despite several pilot studies and commissioned reports, very little is known about public opinion regarding the replacement of fuel taxes with mileage user fees. Using data from the recently completed 2013 IU SPEA Mileage User Fee Survey, we show that there is widespread public opposition to the enactment of a mileage-based road user fee. This issue of SPEA Insights provides an overview of the Survey and summarizes some of the main findings.
