(Salem, OR)  --  The Oregon Department of Transportation has an initiative underway that could replace the current state gas tax.  Residents can volunteer to participate in the program, in which a per-mile road-usage tax will be used to fund road and bridge projects across Oregon.  Supporters of the idea say gas-tax revenue is falling off because of more fuel-efficient gas vehicles and more electric and hybrid cars on the road.
