Illinois wants a $1000 surcharge added to electric car buyers' vehicle registrations.

Supposedly to offset forgone gas taxes. Uh-Huh. Illinois doesn't already
have utility taxes in place?

Silicon Valley commuters are already expecting charging stations at work,
and the PRK has no excess generating capacity anywhere. Overnight
charging makes sense now because rates are lower at night, but rising
nighttime demand will erase the difference.

Until Liquid Electricity become real, I don't see a Tesla in my future.
