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.

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.

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.
