Electric cars and electric transportation is a lot cheaper than you think. I was shocked when I bought a golf cart how inexpensive it was to drive it around and I noticed that my electric bill did not hardly go up and all. The range of my golf cart is 25 miles and it is quite zippy around town. I am fortunately in that my city allows golf carts on the street and there are wide shoulders that can be shared by bicycles and golf carts.
If you are tired of these high fuel prices then perhaps you might want to try the electric option? You can buy an electric motorized bicycle fairly cheaply and the prices range between $ 850.00 to $ 1500.00 for the lower-end models; the best part about it is that it only costs $ 10. per charge and they have about a 30 mile range. The top speed is about 20 mph and get this – No special license is needed.
If you're waiting to buy a full on Electric Car you might be surprised to find out that The GM Volt will be out soon in 2009 they say and it will probably be in the vicinity of $ 45,000.00 to $ 50,000.00 which is a cost that you could recoup by saving that monthly fuel bill. The costs to charge it will be about 80 ¢ – now does not that sound great? The GM Volt will also have a 40 mile or better range and an gasoline motor in case you have longer trips outside the city. Thus, you should average about 100 MPG. Finally, there is some relief to the high fuel prices in battery operated vehicles from bicycles two cars, and golf carts too. Think about it.
