You assume that people are that irresponsible with their money? Let me give you some particulars....Between my beautiful wife and myself we are $70K range of income, with a average mortgage. I own a 14 year old f-150, paid for, and will run til the wheels fall off it. And we bought a Fusion for my wife two years ago that cost us about $24K...I think that is about average as to what most people do in their budgets...I wouldn't be caught dead in some rollerskate for $40K....
Obama in 2009: If I can’t fix the economy in three years, you can call me former President Obama
If the average user consumes $2000 a year in gasoline then it would cost $375 for the equivalent in electricity alone. That's a savings of $1625 per year in fuel without the need for building anymore new power plants, not including any price adjustments of future fuel cost increases. That would replace 400 million gallons of gasoline consumed per day in the US alone. That's a gross retail sales of $200 billion per year back in peoples pockets. Once they bring the cost range of electric vehicles within the 20k mark we should see an exodus into that market. They're quicker, quieter, cleaner, more reliable and less maintenance. And the battery conundrum will be easily solved by technology soon. There really isn't a choice and the old dinosaurs have outlived their use. That's us...lol

“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
