Batteries are much cleaner than oil, we're talking about cities getting cleaned, air pollution ended, lives being saved, and billions in health spent for lung-related diseases recovered. Not to mention it will be cheaper because the cost of the technology just keeps falling at a ridiculous pace.

Tax payers are still subsidizing the oil industry. Why not electric cars?

Subsidies in one form or another are responsible for all human progress. But I think we are done with oil in that respect

At $0.12 per kWh, a person could spend $3.48 per 100 miles, which would translate to roughly 33mpg at $1.15 per gallon.

But, should gas  go below a dollar, or even $1.15, your back to square one where the average small car gets at least that if not more, and having to recharge is not a problem.

More EV charging stations are needed where people work and travel. I love my 3-year old Nissan LEAF, but have a back-up van with an internal combustion engine for long trips. The battery placement in my EV results in a low center of gravity that gives my EV much better handling than my van. I charge my LEAF in my garage that has solar panels on its roof.

@Rodent it's going to have to be a hard pass. I mean if I really had to choose it would be a Tesla or a Raptor.
