US Department of Energy http://wunc.org en New Tool Compares Fuel Costs For Electric & Non-Electric Cars http://wunc.org/post/new-tool-compares-fuel-costs-electric-non-electric-cars <p>A<a href="http://energy.gov/articles/egallon-how-much-cheaper-it-drive-electricity"> new tool on the US Department of Energy’s website</a> allows users in each state to compare the price of power for an electric car to the cost of driving the same distance using gasoline. In North Carolina, a gallon of regular, unleaded fuel costs an average of $3.41. The equivalent amount of electricity costs about a third of that- an average of $1.02. That’s 12 cents less than the national average. Mon, 17 Jun 2013 09:00:00 +0000 Avery Kleinman 17269 at http://wunc.org New Tool Compares Fuel Costs For Electric & Non-Electric Cars
