With the vaccines now available and people starting to look forward to the pandemic slowing down, we can expect that there will be more people traveling in the next few months. With this increase in traveling of course we will probably come to see higher gas prices. We have already seen the average price per gallon raise approximately 13 cents in the past month. With the price of gas rising, we can also expect that sales of Electric Vehicles will continue rise over the next few years. It is estimated that by 2025 that 25 percent of vehicle sales will be electric. The Department of Energy (DOE) defines electric vehicles as vehicles that use electricity as their primary source of power or to improve the efficiency of conventional vehicle designs.
With all of these electric vehicles, owners will be looking for convenient places to charge them besides at home. Because of this increased demand, national retailers are partnering with companies to install charging stations throughout the United States. Installing these charging stations gives retailers the opportunity to attract customers to their stores to use the stations, as well as increased store sales from the customers spending more time shopping while they wait for their vehicles to charge. Below is a list of some of the retailers that currently offer EV charging:
- Whole Foods
