It would be far more cost effective to install CNG refueling stations than this idiocy.

CNG is a far more practical alternative motor fuel possibility.

one in a day.5

Does that mean a day and a half, or half a day?

With much fanfare, one was installed in Topeka...I have never seen it in use.

I assume these were built by Obama fundraisers with taxpayer funds. To save the economy and environment of course...

Charging stations not getting much use (outnumber electric cars in Tennessee)
Costco discovered the same thing back in Aogust ... "Citing a Lack of Usage, Costco Removes E.V. Chargers"

This is the normal result when you let politicians make "investment" decisions better left to the free market. In the long run, and it many not be that long, the free market will have it way whether the politicians like it or not.

Just ask the people of New Mexico how they like paying for that Rail Runner train connecting Albuquerque to Santa Fe.

Pa. Turnpike to get electric car charging stations

Would they need to put these every mile and a half or so?

Right now, the gas stations are about 20 miles apart on the Turnpike and most cars can go about 400 miles between fill-ups. With electric cars getting 30 to 40 miles on a charge with a light load in late springtime (or early fall) on level ground ... Well, you do the math.
