EV Envy

I know I want to drive electric.

My mom was a recycling activist back in the Seventies and I remember very clearly a conversation I had with her about the oil embargo in 1979. “Smart people will figure out how to solve these problems. They have to.”

I don’t think she expected two Bush/Cheney administrations and a willingness to engage in perpetual war to keep gas cheap.

Mom’s voice rings in my head every time I hear an argument about how you could buy 4000 gallons of gas for the price difference between an EV and ICE car.

Somebody summarized the issue simply on another website:

“Park your car in a closed garage with the engine running. Is your main concern running out of gas ?”
