When will EV charging stations become common at gas stations?

    The electric car market has a major problem in that the lack of infrastructure for charging is a major barrier to widespread ownership. This is commonly referred to as the electric car’s “chicken and egg problem.” A conservative economist will tell you that if demand for EV charging stations increases, companies will develop ways to fill the need. However, if people will not buy the cars with out a reliable, easily accessible way to charge them, then there will be no demand for charging stations.

    In order to help solve this problem, the US government is providing a $37million subsidy to place charging stations in 9 test markets around the country. The goal is to get 1 million eclectic cars on the road by 2015. Time will tell if this charging method spreads.
