You pay a use tax every time you fill up your tank.
We do ration energy. It's called a utility bill. (It's probably taxed, as well, just like other items you buy.)
We do have electronic money. Every time you use a credit card, it's electronic money. Every Direct Deposit is electronic money.
We have a de facto national ID. It's called your Social Security #, which is now used everywhere to check your credit report and track you.
