Across the country, fuel tax revenues are declining due to increased fuel efficiency and decreased purchasing power for construction supplies. To maintain funding for roads and bridge maintenance and construction, Oklahoma is one of many states proactively exploring a pay-per-mile program that could replace the current fuel tax model. This process was mandated by the state legislature passing HB 1712 in 2021.
Join other Oklahomans in helping solve this potential problem by participating in a state-wide pilot study. All you must do to participate is sign up, continue driving as normal, report the miles you’ve driven, and share feedback about your experience.
Why Fair Miles
Addresses Funding Threat
Increasing fuel efficiency will decrease available fuel tax funds for Oklahoma’s transportation infrastructure maintenance and innovation. Fair Miles seeks to explore alternative funding options to replace the state fuel tax.
Establishes Fair Funding Model
Pay-per-mile programs treat roads like utilities and only charge you for what you use. Pay-per-mile programs help eliminate inequitable pressure on populations within Oklahoma that pay a disproportionate amount of state fuel tax.
Addresses Road Conditions
Road conditions worsen if adequate funding isn’t available for ongoing maintenance. As Oklahoma’s projected decrease in fuel tax is realized, road conditions will be difficult to maintain. A pay-per-mile program will keep our roads and bridges safe and usable.
