Re: “What’s behind that new $75 car-tab fee”:

A $75 car-tab fee makes perfect sense to me. I have driven a hybrid vehicle for probably 15 years. These vehicles cost more than normal combustion-engine cars, but I was doing what I could for the environment.

Now I get to pay a tax on my hybrid to fund electric charging stations. It seems more like a fine.

My vehicle will never use the charging stations. Who paid for the many gas stations around? Oh, that would be the petroleum companies and me every time I filled up. Electric cars may be the wave of the future, but then future electric companies should pay for the necessary infrastructure and users should pay for their charges.
