New owner from Dallas, Texas and why I bought TSLA at 25 something a share.

Hi fellas,

Back in 2010 I noticed some interesting stock picks by major investors that intrigue me. This led to researching why. After doing some online research and buying numerous books I discovered why: gas prices will go up... tremendously.

The automobile industry was one of the obvious places to benefit from this change by investing in electric vehicles, I noted to a friend. He pulled up teslamotors.com on his computer screen. Seeing the yet to be produced Model S was, well, a no brainier. I bought in TSLA at 25 something a share. Later I bought in at 27 something a share. Haven't and will not be selling anytime soon.

Four weeks ago my 85d arrived. I once thought rising gas prices would be the catalyst for change. Now I see an EV is simply superior to an ICE in every way. With a car like the Model S, how can Tesla not succeed!?
