In the beginning, gasoline-powered automobiles had to search far and wide to find a gas station. First, the Ford Model T, then the gas stations. Today, there are over 100,000 gas stations, not including private stations, in the United States, which makes sense, because there are some 250 million vehicles on the road. The electric vehicle does have the advantage when it comes to charging, because it doesn’t need public charging stations. Electric vehicle owners can simply charge at home.
