This is a very good point worth saying. With Electric you DO get options on energy sources. As the technology progresses we will have solar, wind and other potential ways of generating energy to charge our cars. With solar in particular, the costs of generating energy will be much less. If we get solar panels for the home, we save long term on electric costs and can charge our cars with it, reducing dependence on big oil, or big energy and promoting independence, and isn't that what we want? It will be a win, win scenario.
