The one thing I've never understood is why gas stations haven't started putting in charging stations. Every gas station has electricity, and I would think it would be trivial to add a charging station or two at each gas station.
I guess they want to maximize oil profits, but it would seem like a good business decision to use their existing infrastructure to building out a nation-wide charging solution and be miles ahead of any other venture (like BMW's solution).
No one seems to want to speed up the transition to electric vehicles, except Tesla. Everyone else appears to be talking the talk, but not walking the walk. Is it fear or is it not wanting to cannibalize their existing business model?
