Electric car charging expenses vary widely, still cheaper than gas

People who drive electric cars pay the equivalent of $1.51 per gallon of gas in fueling expense in California but only 83 cents in North Dakota, according to new federal government figures.

The Energy Department data show the wide variability between states in the cost savings for charging electric vehicles. The national average is $1.14.

The data are available on a new calculator that is part of the Energy Department’s launch of eGallon — a way for consumers to compare the cost of fueling electric and gasoline vehicles.

For example, the national average eGallon price means that a typical electric vehicle could travel as far on $1.14 worth of electricity as a similar vehicle could travel on a gallon of gasoline.
