  1. You haven’t bothered to try to find a study that shows whether this number is increasing or declining. My bed is the former. A quarter of the country is close to 100 million people seriously considering purchasing an electric vehicle. I’m retired and I don’t want one either because I can’t afford one and it doesn’t serve my needs. You people are so obsessed with serving the oil and gas industry that nothing gets past your blinders.
