    Triple A just came out with a report predicting a 40 cent bump in gas prices this summer. Sure am glad I drive a Prime.

    I'm at $2.28 in NJ after our $.23 increase in Nov.





    Merged, please use multiquote. Thanks.





    How you calculate cost per mile for electric. Not sure how to do that.

    i divide my total bill by kWh used. we don't have any minimum monthly, tiered or time of use rates. we have a kWh price, and then 4 billion add ons like production charges, delivery charges, ceo salary charges and etc.

    I use my (roughly .145) kWh charge *6.1(full charge, not sure if right number) *5.5(charges per week).
    And yeah, the ceo salary hurts.

    40% more would put us at about $3/gallon here. My last tank was $3.41 per 100 miles including electricity. At 40% more, it would have been $4.39 ($0.98 more). My old Gen 2 would have gone from $4.43 to $6.12 per 100 miles ($1.69 more).

    But I wonder if electricity will stay the same.

    Oops!! I somehow inserted a "per" in from of "cent." :oops:

    @bisco, our gas prices are similar to Orlando. They just went up about a nickel here. I paid $2.169/gallon Sunday, but most places are about $2.20 or so now. For electric, if I'd had to buy all I used, I'd have spent about $0.85 per 100 miles on electrons. But I only had to pay for a little over half my electricity thanks to charging at work and church for free. I would for sure be able to use more electricity and less gas in a Prime.

    I am paying 11 cents per KWH in Dover, DE and I get 4.4 miles per KWH which means that traveling 100 miles costs me $2.50. When running pure gas hybrid, I am getting 55 mpg, which translates into 1.8 gals of gas which, at current prices ($2.25), means I pay $3.96 to travel the same 100 miles. Even at today's gasoline prices, I am saving a lot driving on pure electric. Not to mention the lower impact on the environment, even taking into consideration the upstream pollution. I can't figure out why California PUC would be rigging the rates and thereby discouraging electric cars. Is that for real? Is this because of more stringent pollution control for California utilities?
