Gas pumps need electricity also...

Plus, you can create your own electricity at home with solar panels and battery storage. Back-up generator without the need for diesel/propane/nat-gas. I haven't installed an oil rig in the backyard yet.

I hear you. It's the same as people who don't fill up their gas tank until the light turns on because they are oblivious to its status. However, charging at home becomes second nature. Park, plug in, all good to go.

It's the saddest thing I have ever seen in my life. The addiction of the phones. I go to the gym 6 days a week. 70-90% on any given day, the phone is in their hands the entire time. Driving, I see it every drive now. It's almost as if 50% are driving with the phone in their hand. They just can't put it down. People shame drug addicts, and cigarette addicts, and to a lesser degree, alcoholics. Phone F'ers get a pass. It's sad and like looking at zombies man.



And society is too skuurred to call out this behavior. Put your phone away. Grown adults acting like 7 year olds.

They're going to grow up into this

It took GM 50 years to make the Corvette MR. So not holding my breath on this timeline.

Gas pumps can run on a power generator, powered by...gas.

A lot of people cant afford a proper house, never mind panels and battery to boot. This there makes it a great idea for those with the means, which is the minority of the population.
15 years, technology will be ready. People might not.

Itís bad either way man. Kids need to be learning, reading, or out doing physical activity. Not staring at a 5Ē or 6Ē screen all day. Itís not different to me, the age that is. Itís just pathetic.

They are going to grow up into Not Sureís attorney. Watching some garbage reality TV program, sucking down beers, sitting on a chair in the living room whist doing so that you can piss and poop into so you donít even have to get up from the screen. There will be a clothing dispenser on the wall as well. Idiocracy is now here.

Gas only last so long until you need a new truck delivery. Solar is available everyday, even if it's cloudy. Plus, if you are saying gas stations are the way to refuel, then charging stations are the equivalent, so only they would need solar/battery storage, not homes/apartments. But we know you can have both, with investment in infrastructure.

I hear you overall. EV currently is not attainable for everyone. However, give it time. Cars and gas stations took time to trickle down to the masses. I don't have solar/battery storage...someday.
