Electric Vehicles: Combatting Prices at the Pump
Recently, gas prices have soared to record highs. According to the American Automobile Association, the average cost per gallon in May 2022 is the highest ever recorded in US history. An especially interesting figure when you consider the previous record high was recorded in July of 2008. Costs have only increased since May, so every month consumers are paying a new record price for gas. And while we can expect prices to stabilize at some point, we can anticipate uncertainty around gas prices for the foreseeable future.
A lot of people are feeling the impact of these high gas prices, but unlike previous periods of increased fuel prices, consumers and car owners today have an answer — electric vehicles.
Consumers and car companies alike understand that the future is in electric vehicles.
We’ve seen increased production and investment by manufacturers to make EVs more affordable and accessible, and we’ve also seen a stark increase in interest related to the purchasing of EVs.
