Some Washington drivers are volunteering to pay by the mile to drive.It’s part of a pilot project to test technology that would charge drivers for every mile they drive on public roads.

About 20 Washington residents are voluntarily taking part in the pilot program out of Oregon. The road-use charge is considered a possible alternative to the gas tax, which will generate less and less money as cars become more fuel efficient.

Once a month, the drivers get a bill charging them 1.5 cents a mile, then offsetting the total by the amount  already paid in gas tax. has how it’s working so far.
