MSN:CNBC: Op-Ed: Gas stations are going away sooner than you think
Traditional city gas stations will disappear from the urban environment as all electric vehicles become commonplace in the city.
"To really jump start electric vehicle use, we need to stop focusing on wired super charging at gas stations and focus more on wireless charging everywhere else. Because people aren't going to go a place to charge. They're going to charge at the places they go."
That's right...where people shop (e.g. supermarkets) to where they park their cars (commuter train stations) people will be able to charge their cars wirelessly. The typical commuter has a round trip of much less than 200 miles, the average range of EVs as they are called.
I read a report that you cannot find a gas station in the downtown area of Boston, for example, because the land has more potential for other commercial ventures. It will further accelerate the EV market for commuters.
Wireless charging is something that might have defied the imagination a few years ago but it is here now and the technology is getting better every day.
More jobs gone by the wayside...especially in Oregon and New Jersey where you are not allowed to pump your own gas.
