California is offering drivers $400 gift cards to test its alternative to the gas tax.

Below are two paragraphs from a LA Times article from May 14th. The state is looking for 400 Guinea pigs to figure out on how to tax you more.

California officials are still trying to figure out how to pay for road repairs and maintenance in the not-so-distant future, when electric vehicles dominate the roadways and gas tax revenue dries up.

So they’re offering drivers up to $400 to test a couple of alternatives for six months, starting in August. The pilot program is open to drivers of all vehicle types, gasoline-powered or otherwise.
