Electricity Prices Are Up, But An ⚡ EV Is Still Much Cheaper Than A 🦕Conventional Car


The EPA says the average new vehicle sold in the US in 2020 (the latest year for which information is available) had a combined fuel economy rating of 25.7 miles per gallon. Therefore, driving 100 miles in an average vehicle would use 3.9 gallons of gas. The EPA also says the average MPGe rating for 2022 model year EVs sold in the US is about 97. MPGe estimates how far an electric car can travel on 33.7 kWh of electricity — the amount deemed equivalent to one gallon of gasoline. Therefore, driving 100 miles in that hypothetical average electric vehicle would use 34.7 kWh of electricity.

The rest is simple. Calculate the cost of 3.9 gallons of gasoline and 34.7 kWh of electricity over time, then compare them to see which is cheaper. The result? Driving a conventional car 100 miles costs $14 for gasoline on average, but only a little over $5 using electricity. The data also shows the 😈🦖 turbulent price of gasoline versus the relatively steady price of ⚡ electricity . Even in San Francisco, where the cost of electricity is the high, the cost of “fuel” for an electric car is still about a third of an equivalent amount of 🦖 gasoline. ... ...

I saw a T-shirt recently that said, “If you voted for Biden, you owe me gas money.”
📢 Wrong. If you bought a 🦖 gas guzzler, that’s on you.
