mindless NPC drones bought electric vehicles, and they were ecstatic that the did not have to spend for gas!
Yes, yes. But electricity has to be generated somehow.
Even if you ignore the enormous environmental impacts associated with manufacturing an electric car (which are significantly higher than a gasoline-powered car), if you live in a state that generates a lot of its electricity from coal, you are essentially driving a coal-powered car.
The next most ignorant view is that at least you don’t have to buy expensive gasoline! People seem to forget that electricity isn’t free, from whatever source.
Folks, wise up a little. <sheesh!…>
