the Department of Energy said last week in a blog post 

Any light-duty electric vehicle available in the United States for the 2022 model year will save drivers thousands of dollars over gasoline or diesel vehicles

Every U.S.-market EV costs less than $1,000 to "fuel" for a year

Hybrids and plug-in hybrids were in the middle, with estimated annual fueling costs of $1,000 to $2,000.

Those calculations are based on 15,000 miles of driving per year

The Energy Department also assumed an average price of $3.54 per gallon for E85

which doesn't work out to any significant advantage in fueling costs

And for intenders thinking about jumping to an EV, the cost savings is a very compelling reason

Another recent study found that, on a fleet basis, nearly half of gasoline trucks could be replaced with electric ones
