Zero profit.

That's a failure for any business.

Electric-car state fees often cost more than gas tax, study shows

Sometimes, you pay more than you get in return from the bitumen.

I doubt asphalt is sold by the barrel but according to roadside public works signage a shave and repave runs around $1M a km for two lanes.
