June 11, 2013 - The U.S. Energy Department today launched “eGallon,” a quick and easy online state-by-state system for drivers to compare the cost of fueling an electric vehicle with the cost of driving the same distance on unleaded regular gasoline. Find it here.
In Oregon, for instance, the eGallon price is about $0.96, meaning that a typical electric vehicle could travel as far on $0.96 worth of electricity as a similar vehicle could travel on a gallon of gasoline, which costs $3.74 in Oregon.
On average, fueling a car with gasoline costs roughly three times more than fueling with electricity.
In California, the eGallon price is $1.51 as compared with a gallon of gas, which costs an average of $3.98 in California.
In Virginia, the eGallon price is $1.04, while a gallon of gas costs $3.41, while in New York, the eGallon price is $1.80, while a gallon of gas costs $3.70. read more>>>
