    In Sarasota area, electric car drivers will soon have more charging stations

    This was local news today here in Sarasota, and I'd hope that stories like it are appearing around the country, but it's worth mentioning a couple of highlights:

    (I added the *bold* emphasis above.) Nice to see local government using some common sense.

    Then this from AAA:

    I have the feeling that we on the east coast are way behind SoCal (maybe CAL in general) when it comes to these things, but it's encouraging for everyone that we start to see infrastructure broadening nationally.

    That is such great news! I'm eagerly if somewhat nervously looking forward to be able to drive back and forth from Sanibel to northern Virginia this Fall sans petrol! The more charging stations the better!

    I don't know about that. Here in San Diego, there are only 4 publicly accessible chargers downtown; it costs $10 (discount) to park for up to 4 hours, they charge for the electricity, and they're always full anyway, with Electric Smart Cars from a company called "Car2Go". Oh, and the Blink chargers are notoriously unreliable.
