@tom; between extra taxes on license plates, registration, the federal heavy vehicle tax, trailer tax and what not truckers are being taxed. Oh, I forgot the tire tax. Perhaps they can be taxed more. Or more by states rather than the feds.

I've modelled personal gas tax, and I think we could live with $10/G gas for commuters. It would hurt, but it could be done. I can't imagine a world where truckers have to pay that much -- our economy would fall apart.
