(GOSHEN) - About a dozen people are taxing themselves an extra 50 cents per gallon of gasoline and giving the money to groups working to break the nation's oil addiction.

The Gas Tax Club of Goshen had its first meeting in April to tally up the tax, and donated more than 400 dollars to the Chain Reaction Bicycle Project.

The Goshen-based project provides bicycle-powered curbside recycling, recycles old bikes and advocates improving bike paths.

Club leaders reportedly got the idea to start the voluntary tax during a gathering last year in Washington, D.C.
