Flex-Fuel Cars Find Few Pumps, Chargers Aplenty: BGOV Barometer

Public charging stations for electric autos outnumber outlets for alternative motor fuels by almost two to one, even though there are hundreds of times more flex-fuel vehicles than plug-in cars on U.S. roads.

The BGOV Barometer shows drivers of the approximately 16,500 highway-worthy electric vehicles in the U.S. can choose from 4,448 public charging stations should they want to plug in someplace other than home or work, according to U.S. Energy Department data.
