    Just tried charging on blink as an experiment to see how it worked and what it costs.

    $4 for about 15 miles, why would anyone ever use that a 2nd time other than for an emergency?

    DCFC's aren't cheap to buy and install. They gotta charge substantially more than the cost of the electricity to have any hope of turning a profit.

    Looks like the "guest" rate is $0.69/kWh in CA, $0.59/kWh in OR and WA, and a flat price of $15/session in all other states.
