I feel sorry for New Jersey drivers who really need a EV to save on gas costs. I have driven in New Jersey, so I know some of their roads. Seems like Gov. Christie needs more money for his huge daily meals!
There is a way around, however. Just buy an electric vehicle and register it in another state. Since this new tax is for New Jersey registered EVs, the EV owner can go against this issue. When the Gov. sees his gas tax income decrease, then he has no other solution but to increase gas taxes to compensate. This will reduce gas consumption and get more out-of-state EVs in!
