TRANSPORTATION AND TAX POLICY. U.S. TAX POLICY FAVORS CARS AND TRUCKS OVER ENERGY-EFFICIENT ALTERNATIVES

Federal tax laws fail to promote energy efficiency in transportation. Low gasoline prices and subsidized parking at work encourage solo driving, and federal policies subsidize big trucks to the detriment of more energy-efficient railroads. Changes in federal tax laws are recommended.
