Energy Guide: THE GAS FREE OPTION
Written by: Jonathan Tabares
Within the past few years, electric cars have been increasing in popularity. Many people tend to underestimate their efficiency and capabilities. The truth is electric cars are capable of doing the same things as gas cars. In fact, electric cars are even more efficient than gas cars. Electric cars can benefit you in three ways: saving money on fuel, less maintenance on the car, and saving our planet from harmful carbon dioxide emissions.
If you go with the gas free option, it’s exactly just that. You won’t have to spend money on gas anymore. That’s a big deal since the average American will spend anywhere between $2,000 and $4,000 on gas in a single year. Although electricity isn’t free, it is significantly cheaper than gas. The most an electric car driver will spend on electricity is $20 a month.
Electric cars are also easier to maintain. Since the car would be electric, you will no longer have to worry about the engine being lubricated with oil. This means that oil changes are no longer necessary in electric cars. Another thing that you won’t have to maintain are the car brakes. Brakes on electric cars tend not to wear out as quickly.
Carbon dioxide emissions are dangerous for our environment. Carbon Dioxide emissions make up approximately 81% of all greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere making it one of the major contributors of climate change. When gas cars are used, they release large amounts of carbon dioxide. That being said, switching to electric cars will help save the environment from further damage because, unlike gas cars, electric cars do not release any carbon dioxide.
