Should gas be free in Twin Falls if electric cars can charge for free?

Everyone has feelings right now about gas prices. Even my kids, who don’t drive, are very aware of high gas prices. I’ve seen a lot of Teslas and other electric cars around town lately, maybe people are willing to pay for a new Tesla and low or free charging fees rather than keep paying for the prices ever-increasing gasoline?

Honestly, I love driving my little turbocharged Sonata and need my gas-guzzling Yukon to tow our summer toys, but I’d swap either for an electric car in a pinch. today. After making a round trip to Bear Lake last week for a family reunion in the Yukon, towing a trailer of kayaks, and refueling twice at around $160 per tank, free or low-cost electric charging seems rather pleasant.

Should gasoline be free

But, free gas sounds much better. I researched charging points around Twin Falls and was surprised to see that there are a few that are free. Even those that charge a fee will cost you a lot less than a tank of gas. Recently in Twin Falls, the public was asked for their input on where electric car chargers are needed. The U.S. government has a national program where states can submit plans to build electric vehicle (EV) charging stations and apply for funds from the federal government to implement those plans.

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations in Twin Falls

According to PlugShare, there are 37 charging stations around Twin Falls and three of them are free to the public. Others are located in company car parks and are only used by customers. Tesla boost stations near the Twin Falls Visitor Center are accessible to the public but charge a fee depending on the car model, as explained on Tesla’s website.

If the cities of Idaho were cars, what would they be?

We love it when the internet shines a little light on Idaho. A lot of people it seems can tend to forget that we exist and when we are recognized there always seems to be a funny glimpse of what strangers think of exactly where we call home we.

A video posted on TikTok has been viewed by hundreds of thousands of users and we have to admit, that sounds pretty fair.
