Source: Komo News -- Cars are becoming more and more fuel-efficient, and you would think that's a good thing.

But Washington state is actually losing money because of it and as a result, the state is now considering a "pay-by-mile" tax.

The state predicts gas tax collected today won't add up to enough cash to pay for future road projects.

Drivers of fuel-efficient cars are spending less at the pump, which means they are paying less in gas tax while driving the same amount of miles.
