You will see gasoline go up no matter what , because as demand

goes down many of the smaller marginal refineries will be shut

down . The US has a lot of older refineries that need a lot of

maintenance to keep running , also no company would build

a new refinery for gasoline or diesel production. They will

build crackers to modify oil to other products that have better

returns. The Shell project in Beaver PA is one of these.

Bikes are not too good in the climate I live in where we

have snow and other bad days aplenty .

Maybe an electric snowmobile! That sounds like a blast!

and you think the snowman will be able to run around all day on one charge? You think recharging stations for cars are scarce, just wait until you try to find one on a snow trial. Duffy have electric boats and sales are at the least stagnant. BB just dream on, it is very entertaining.

I wonder how they deal with the cold. Li-ion does not like the cold.

I dont see demand(oil) going down much. As some convert to electric ,still many more enter the fossil fuel world in burgeoning economies. China,s conversion from bicycles to gas powered vehicles is still going strong. Oil demand soaring in china. Some of the new transport is electric, but not enough to curb runaway demand for oil.

I don't know how they manage the temperature so more details

would be needed . If they have active management of the battery

temperature some of the battery energy would keep it above 32*

so it could be charged. This is the big thing missing in the Nissan

leaf , so their battery life is compromised without this feature.

You charge at each bar with the onboard charger.
