OK, project 10 years or so into the future. What if EVs do take off like madness (probably will) and the vast majority of vehicles on the road are EVs instead of ICEs. Wouldn't it be logical thinking that most of the gas stations will fold? What if some of us hold-outs end up having to drive 20 miles or more to the next town just to fill up? I'm not talking about those that live in Goat's Beard Ridge and already have to drive 20 miles to fill up, I'm talking most of us. And what the heck will we do with all the petroleum that's left? I'm thinking at that point the days of widespread free charging outlets will be over. I think the oil companies will take over the electrical generation and distribution industries. I also look for the price of electricity to go way up. Electricity won't be the cheap alternative, it'll be the monopoly. Someone's not only going to have to pay the stockholders, but they're also going to have to pay for vast improvements to the grid. Once they've become the norm, EVs may not be nearly as inexpensive to operate as they are now. Not that wild of a thought. Consider that just 10 or so years ago, the internet was basically a free market. Site owners and advertisers dealt directly with each other. Now, Search Engines and advertising companies have stepped in and dictate what you can and cannot and what you will and will not do. They control the advertising, and that pretty much controls the net. The days of the little guy achieving the American Dream on the internet are just about over. You have to ask the internet middlemen for permission for just about anything and everything. And then you have to pay them. Or you just remain a bystander.
