Recent attention given to gas prices in our area should be the backbreaking straw to swing people away from fossil fuel and toward renewable power sources – which continue to improve as technology advances and production scales up.
As an early adopter not wishing to rub salt in anyone’s wounds I will only say it’s sure nice to plug in at home instead of waiting in line for gas. And while I know it takes energy to make energy I’ll only say that the path we’ve chosen for 100 years enriches only corporations while continuing to pollute skies which cleared to a brilliant blue alternative when we stopped driving and polluting during the pandemic. It should be obvious which direction we need to go but unfortunately for this country it takes time to sway public opinion.
Soon there will be more options for those who feel they need larger vehicles like trucks and vans and momentum is slowly but surely swinging in the right direction. It’d be prudent to wait purchasing a new vehicle that will only tie you to a gas pump for another five to ten years.
