To the editor:
Gasoline-powered vehicles always will be around, even though gas prices go up and down.
Most of the time you don’t have to wait in line to get gasoline or oil. Now, you take electric vehicles — they will cost so much, who will be able to afford them? They are building charging stations all over, but the problem there is that it takes a couple of hours to charge your electric vehicles.
If you are so low on your battery that you can’t make it to another charging station because there are a lot of people there ahead of you, it could be a long wait. Battery problems are common. For instance, sometimes the charging system won’t hold a charge, or the connections are corroded. Sometimes the wiring gets heated and melts the wire coating, causing a short.
There are a lot of faults with batteries. What if you are in a bad electric storm — your batteries could explode or the wiring could cause a fire.
So, if you buy an electric vehicle, be sure you have a big bank account.
