Record Vancouver gasoline price sparks interest in Electric Cars | Vancouver Observer

Record-high gas prices and a fear of climate change charged up many of the 200 Vancouver-area drivers who came out to an electric vehicle (EV) showcase on Thursday night.

Many who showed up for the free test drives, said organizers, were trying to escape the shock of record gasoline prices.

“A large portion of the attendees were there to look at electric cars because of the high price of fuel, and the high price of operating their gas cars,” said Bruce Stout, Director of the Vancouver Electric Vehicle Association.

“You save a lot of money. You pay more [up front] for an electric car. But you’re buying all your fuel up front, is one way to look at it,” he added.

Vancouver gasoline prices tied an all-time July 2008 record of $1.51 per Litre Friday at 2pm, according to

Charging a car “full” said Stout takes mere pennies.
