How much cheaper is it to drive on Electricity? The Answer can be given based on eGallon

One of the United States Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) missions is to ensure the American’s energy safety by meditating environmental challenges and concerns. To undertake the task, their team at the Argonne National Lab built a new tool, eGallon, that helps car buyers compare the cost of driving an electric vehicle (EV) to a conventional vehicle ( gasoline-powered vehicle). More precisely, according to DOE, eGallon is the cost of fueling a vehicle with electricity compared to a similar vehicle that runs on gasoline.

For example, assume that an average distance that a gasoline-powered vehicle can drive on a gallon of gas is 28.2 miles (for comparable 2012 model year cars). According to eGallon, it costs $ 2.39 while an EV at the same model has $ 1.07 cost. It is also shown as a simple and incredible fact that it costs about half as much to drive an electric vehicle, on average.
