It’s the engine of course. It effortlessly converts the energy in fuel to work. Work that has created modern society, get’s our kids to school on time, keeps our lawns nicely cut, and propels all of those awesome sports cars we love (ok, not all).

- FACT: Many gas stations are just barely making it.
- Companies are tripping over themselves to get electric powered vehicles on the market.
- Honda’s goal is to have two-thirds of its cars electrified by 2030.
- Soon, consumers will be able to buy an comprable electric car for the same price as a gasoline powered car
- Once poor performing gas stations go under, gas will get harder to find.
- This will encourage more people to go electric
- This will put even more gas stations out of business.
Stage 1: Popularity of electric cars continues to grow.
Stage 2: Loss in gasoline sales begins to affect gas stations.

Stage 4: The lack of local gasoline encourage more people to buy electric
Stage 5: Stage 4 causes the value of gas powered cars to sink.
Stage 6: The cycle continues until gas powered cars are almost worthless.
Tesla’s technology lead for making electric cars is racing along and is the the point that they are so far ahead of traditional auto makers that, most likely, the traditional auto makers cannot catch up.
