Here is the last paragraph of Eric Jaffe’s article on gas taxes in the US. It projects some very good outcomes for higher gasoline taxes:

But in the long-run Americans would see some very real benefits from a price of gas that most closely reflected the true cost of driving. Fewer loved ones killed in car crashes. Healthier pregnancies and babies. More time spent with family and friends. Better access to jobs, and perhaps as productivity increased, higher wages. More livable developments and, with them, slimmer waistlines. Cleaner and quieter air. The sorts of things we can’t fit in our purses or wallets, but which cost us dearly just the same.

The Real Reason U.S. Gas Is So Cheap Is Americans Don’t Pay the True Cost of Driving, A gas tax that fully corrected for the social impact of car reliance would upend life as we know it, Eric Jaffe
