just think of all the money invested in oil stations... ok.. now invest in all eehm and all garages to get electricity.. tricky ain't it?
Land use zoning would not have to change, nor would the buildings, lifts, etc. Good mechanics are used to "keeping up" with technical innovations. I would expect my L.A. mechanic and my mechanic here in Arkansas both to be proficient at and equipped for maintaining hybrid electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids and pure electric vehicles long before they became 20% of the market, just out of good business practices. They are neither stupid nor bad businessmen. There are businessmen selling and servicing pure electric, street legal vehicles in Little Rock right now.
If gasoline prices continue on this trajectory another 18 months the change-over will become a train and no one will want to be in its way. $6/gal gas by September will start getting everyone alarmed, if not panicked. People will start to see their lives and those of their neighbors coming apart. The best way to make money will be to offer to ameliorate the impacts.
I wonder if the rate of increase will noticeably increase after the U.S. Presidential elections.
As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
