Your point about the type of driving, and how it affects comparative savings between EVs and gassers is an important consideration in comparing the two.
Local,short distance driving can really make an EV look good.
But put that EV on highway long distance driving, and the picture really changes.
Obviously the higher price of an EV likeVolt affects the equation too.
If one looks only at EV prices versus fuel cost for gassers, it takes a fair amount of time for the savings to kick in.
That said, other considerations muddy up the water a bit.
From an environmental viewpoint, EVs are incrementally better.
And, as was pointed out elsewhere, early adopters for EVs probably aren't concerned about price.
So, at the end of the day, it really depends on the buyer, the type of driving, and how strongly one feels about environment.
Needless to say, I feel it's early days in the EV evolution.
I think it's better to wait a few short years to see where it's all going before diving in too deeply.
There are developments in the works right now which could change the picture significantly in the near future.
Gizmo, all valid points. Battery storage capacity and recharge time will be critical.

Lol Dolt, your wife has the crack pipe. Did I mention garlic? It’s very nutritious and alters the flavor of my extensive mind blowing and very warm manhood.

If you would act like an adult you’d be treated as such. If that day ever comes we’ll all be posting in harmony. Stop the silly games grow up and stand on your own two feet. Pick a username, stick with it and act accordingly.

I asked a legitimate question about Canadian money smelling like syrup, even provided a link. You failed to answer it for some unknown reason. You’re probably a victim of pride and that will always present a problem with your ability to think rationally. Weird and unstable as hell.

See what I mean?
The guy's track record speaks for itself.
One minute he's acting like a child with really dumb posts, name calling, etc.
The next he's full of self righteous finger pointing.
A write off as far as I'm concerned.
Not worth the time of day.

Lol are you for real?

If you would act like an adult you’d be treated like one. Put your pride aside and stop talking with a spilt tongue. You reply “weird and unstable as hell” and follow it up with name calling “One minute he's acting like a child with really dumb posts, name calling, etc.”

When you act like a fool you will be treated as such.

When you act like an adult and conduct yourself in such manner you will be treated as such.

Gixom, do this forum a big favor and act like an adult and learn how to spell. Again, why do you act like a child and call people names? If you had the courage to stand on your laurels there would be no problem. You don’t even have the decency to answer the question about your syrup money much less talk about cars. What are you so mad about> being a Canadian? It’s not my fault.

Ok, I just did a search on Google “gay marine named gizmo with pride problem” and it returned this:

Now I understand why you have problems with the Volt. It's to cold for you to have one.
