The least populated states have the least charging stations. And the most populated states have more charging stations. Makes sense.

It's one of those fly-over states that nobody wants to visit - almost as bad as Illinois.

I live in California about 100 miles north of San Francisco. There are two charging stations in my entire county last time I checked. One at a hotel about 15 miles from me and one at a winery about 25 miles from me. We're usually way behind the curve with any tech stuff. When I moved here in '91 the grocery stores didn't have scanners at the checkstands.

My sister in law has a bmw i3. I told my brother that car is as ghey as a picnic basket. I will take my gas guzzling Tahoe, Vette or wife’s oversized grocery cart any day over an electric piece of shit. Make them with a 250+ mile range, reasonably priced and non fire hazardous. Until that happens, keep hugging trees and I’ll keep buying unnecessarily large engined gas guzzlers.

I drive a 2019 Mustang. Depending on which site you believe there are between 155,000 and 168,000 "charging stations" in the US. I got 32 MPG on my last road trip with the Ecoboost and I never spend more than about 5 minutes "recharging". And I will never have to worry about my battery pack spontaneously combusting, or wonder about the environmental impact of disposing of all those pesky battery cells every so often. And if I fall asleep at the wheel Darwin will win instead of auto pilot saving my worthless ass.

I'm shocked MT has that many. I've never seen one. I assume most are in Missoula and Kalispell... the gay part of the state

I think WalMart is installing them. There is one at the WalMart by my office. Of course the spaces are always taken up by gas cars.
