PSIP Description: 
The unintended consequence of fuel-efficient cars, less gas being sold, is examined.
Long Description: 
This coming Saturday we report on an unintended consequence of the popularity of fuel-efficient cars - less gas being sold - and therefore less federal gas tax being collected, which depletes the funds available to repair the nation's roads and bridges. Oregon has a controversial solution to the problem - by instituting a tax based on the miles you drive. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.
