The rising prices of energy and electricity are causing all kinds of problems around the world, and the latest sector to feel the impact is the electric car space. It has been found that the quick charge stations charge consumers more than what is needed to fill a regular car with gasoline.
Over the past year, rising prices have become a trend, but it has not been until January when prices have shifted, with gasoline lagging behind fast charging stations. It must be said that standard charging (i.e. slower charging) is still much cheaper than gasoline and, by extension, fast charging points, but sometimes waiting hours to be able to hit the road again is not always the best option.
It is also worth noting that these data reflect the current UK, which has peak and Valley rates for using energy during the colder winter months, which means that if you want to top up your electric car at night and use standard charging methods, it will still be much less pricey than going to a fast charging point during the day.
