When asked about the top concerns preventing them from making the jump from gas to electric, 61% cited charging logistics, followed by 55% saying the number of miles the vehicle can go per charge and 52% saying the costs of buying and maintaining an electric-only vehicle.

They knew that if a small group of people controlled the money supply, they would constantly transfer the wealth of the nation to themselves without providing the nation any benefits.
