    Outside of the obvious environmental benefits, I would be lying if said financial incentive was a major contributing factor on why I plan to switch to an EV in the near future. Gas prices are on the rise and many are predicting the days of rock bottom pandemic pricing is over. Saving at the pump is right up there with saving our habitat.
