It's odd to me that existing gas stations aren't installing electric vehicle
charging stations. EV's don't compete with gas cars for fuel now. By not
providing charging facilities gas stations are losing business to the rapidly-
growing EV market. Other retailers like Kohl's and Walgreens have seen the
draw. When will BP, Shell, Texaco, Conoco and the lot add some charging
infrastructure? I sure see a lot of commercials that the traditional energy
companies are "researching green alternatives." Some quick charging stations
on the usual corners would show me their money is where their ads are.
My understanding about gas sales is that most profit is made in the sales of
convenience items. If I had the ability to stop at a gas station to plug
in I would most certainly stop in for a cup of coffee or pack of gum, or maybe
even something more expensive. I haven't stopped at a gas station for a long
time now. I wonder if they would ever want me to come back?
