Have not seen much discussion of this aspect. All our local communities are currently bleeding-out millions of dollars a week to the oil companies/foreign despots. This money is gone forever and is being used in many oil producing countries to support dictatorships and purchase weapons and luxury goods for the 1%. As more drivers are able to stop making those weekly $80 gas purchases they will have more money left in their pockets to spend in the local economy. The money they do spend on electricity (about 1/3 or less of what they were spending) will remain in their local states and communities, where it can be recirculated and invested in things like grid improvements and large scale solar generation, creating more jobs in renewable energy. I am convinced that this, along with the thousands of good factory jobs in America that it will take to replace the ICE, will have a major positive impact on our still-struggling economy. When you combine this with the net decrease in CO2 and other pollutants from cars that can (and increasingly will) run on sunshine, there is every reason to think that the Tesla vision will be the "hope and change" that so many of us want to see. Go Tesla!
