Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg raised eyebrows among millions of struggling Americans this week when he suggest a great way to save money on record-high gas prices is to purchase an electric vehicle.
“Clean transportation can bring significant cost savings for the American people. Last month we announced a $5 billion investment to build-out a nationwide electric vehicle charging network so that people from rural to suburban to urban communities can all benefit from the gas savings of driving an EV (electric vehicle),” said Buttigieg.
The average cost of an electric car is $61,000.
