    The tax level was initially set at SEK ($30) per ton of CO 2 and then successively raised to the current level of SEK ($). The goal of the tax is to reduce emissions of CO 2, the main greenhouse gas (GHG) contributing to climate change, by equalizing the private and social cost of Cited by: 3.   Aiming to cut use of gasoline and dependence on foreign oil, the federal government gives you a $7, tax credit if you buy a new electric car. Various states add their own tax .

      I can only guess that they will use this as a scary alternative to justify raising the gas taxes.” By the way, the gas tax is only about 35 percent of subsidies to the U.S. road and highway.   To reduce CO 2 emissions governments often opt for car taxes that are based on fuel efficiency, measured in liters per km (or miles per gallon). Proponents of an upfront car tax argue that it would be more effective than a fuel tax paid at the pump because of an investment inefficiency – consumers may be short sighted, failing to take future fuel taxes into account when choosing a new.

An emissions tax is efficient, but measurement of every car's emissions would be inaccurate and expensive. With identical consumers, we demonstrate the same efficiency for: an emissions tax; a gas tax that depends on fuel type, engine size, and pollution control equipment (PCE) ; a vehicle tax that depends on mileage; or a combination of uniform tax rates on gasoline and engine size with a Cited by: A tax on vehicle emissions can efficiently induce all of the cheapest forms of abatement.

The tax on emissions φ is equivalent to a fuel tax of φδ g on gasoline and φδ e on ethanol. Since δ g > δ e, there is a rationale for a differential fuel tax on the two fuels with a lower fuel tax/higher tax credit to ethanol depending on its carbon intensity relative to gasoline.

This would induce a substitution toward the relatively Cited by: With identical consumers, we demonstrate the same efficiency for: an emissions tax; a gas tax that depends on fuel type, engine size, and pollution control ent PCE; a vehicle tax that depends on mileage; or a combination of uniform tax rates on gasoline and engine size with a subsidy to PCE.
