    They may carry a small Honda generator that might be able to power up your charging station is you brought yours along from home. Of course you will be paying him big bucks by the hours for however long it takes to fully charge your EV. Of course those intelligent enough to bring along their own charging station will most like have brought their own generator as well.

    Most likely Yes as EV gain so the rest will follow

    Since every Car maker in the World is crossing over to EV cars and trucks

    The future is electric

    I would imagine theyíd charge you up enough to comfortably make it to the next charging station.

    A full charge would be impractical.

    Of course, that will vary greatly depending if youíre driving a peanut or an F150 (or larger) towing a camper that sleeps a small village.

    I donít know what the numbers are at this point, but there is only so much crude oil available on Earth.

    Once itís gone, itís gone, unless there are a few million dinosaurs hanging out somewhere we donít know about.

    Yes, oil is used in creating electricity, but there are alternative, cleaner means to do so.

    Depending on the source used, the current proven reserves are enough, to last at the current consumption rate, for between 47 and 70 years. Exploration is still finding new oil deposits. Research is also finding new like bio-diesel that should be able to keep our heavy ground transportation systems running.

    Now they need to concentrate on the one of the largest users of fossil fuels, the aviation industry.

    Thatís a long time, but another way to look at it is that we will be ďout of gasĒ in our kidsí, or at best, our grandkidsí lifetimes.
