States whose gas tax revenues plummeted as drivers stayed home or switched to hybrid and electric vehicles are increasingly eyeing mileage fees to replenish shortfalls in road construction and maintenance funds.

Hawaii, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia and Washington have considered legislation this year to base taxes on the number of miles electric vehicles are driven, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
