Where do you live that gas costs $2.32 / gallon? Venezuela?

It's simply for the quiz, though you might be surprised at prices across the nation! This is always interesting to see:

Antonio from Venezuela spent $629.03 on electricity to travel 15,000 miles. He saved $820.96 @ $2.32 a gallon.
If Antonio lived in Los Angeles, he'd have paid $4 a gallon for gas, or 0.22 a kWh. He'd have saved $1,435.49 if he lived in California.

If Antonio moves to Upstate NY, where public charging is still prolific and free, and Gas costs $3.00 per gallon, then how much will he save? :)


* not sure how long free will last...

*Free charging pretty much expired in this part of upstate NY about 5-6 years ago. Didn't last long. I don't know where you are. At least our electricity is cheap (and very clean!)

Well... we live in a suburb of Rochester NY that has pledged to become a EV ‘Model City’

Some locations are "Chargepoint' stations, that currently charge zero for charging, but quite a few are "Schneider Electric EV Link Pedestal Dual Electric Car Charger" units and have no method for even accepting payment. They don't have a RFID card reader option. I guess it could be added later, but for now... Free....
