    So, the owner of a $10,000 used SLT truck that gets 15mpg could buy 16,000 gallons of gas (at $5.00/gallon) and drive 240,000 miles on it ... without worrying about having to recharge on cross-country trips. (At 12k miles/yr that's 20 years of driving...)

    OR

    The owner of a $90,000 Tesla S could pay even more for electricity to charge it, could never drive cross-country without recharges, and would probably take the rest of his/her life to get a positive return on investment out of the vehicle from the fuel savings. It seems like a Prius for the rich, to me...

    I'll stick to gas, thanks. I think Tesla Motors makes nifty things ... but until they become reasonably affordable they make no sense for the average buyer -- there's just no ROI in them.
