I've done the math many times (although not in the last few months) on EV charging vs gasoline. On an apples to apples basis, EV charging is well under half, often only a third, of the price of gas...

We lived for 25 years in towns with Town Meetings. I loved them at first for all the romantic reasons. But after a while it becomes clear that there is a huge cost (in time) to voting. This cost...
