Today’s Cost to Fuel an Electric Vehicle Car Versus a Gas Car
Electric vs. Gas Vehicles: On Average
- An electric car can drive 2.89 miles per kWh. // A gas vehicle on average can drive 24.90 miles per gallon.
- The average cost is $0.105 per kwh. // The average cost of gas is $4.065 per gallon.
- The average person drives 14,263 miles per year. // The average fleet vehicle logs between 20,000 – 30,000 miles per year.
The total cost of ownership for EVs has already been shown to be significantly less than for gas-powered vehicles. This is even more significant when you consider the rising gas prices we see today.
Consumer Reports writes:
“…new research from Consumer Reports shows that when total ownership cost is considered – including such factors as purchase price, fueling costs, and maintenance expenses – EVs come out ahead, especially in more affordable segments.”
Gasoline prices (AAA):
- March 2022 – average retail gas price $3.90
- March 2021 – average retail gas price $2.51
