Another problem is that huge sums of the money paid by drivers in gas taxes are spent on mass transit and other "non-highway purposes" instead of being spent to build, repair and maintain roads.

I no doubt will regret even responding to you, but you are way off base here.

"Huge Sums... spent on mass transit" - it's 20% of the highway trust fund. And the FTA obligated around $10 billion (Table 1) in FY 2009 for transit but the congestion benefit of transit was over $18 billion (page 33) so I'd say it's a pretty good deal.
