Most American drivers aren’t ready to give up gasoline.
Nearly 60 percent of respondents in a new “USA Today”/Gallup poll say they would not buy an all-electric vehicle even if prices at the pump keep climbing. The report suggests the price and the limited driving range per charge of electric cars could be part of the problem. The Obama administration has set a goal to have a million electric vehicles on America’s roads by 2015. So far, the only all-electric vehicle on the market in the U.S. is the Nissan Leaf.
