Nope.

All the Permian Basin (West Texas to NM) growth is from fracking. You clearly do not understand that oil from shale comes from fracking. Here is an article from March 19, 2014 about the Permian Basin fracking oil boom. Trump was not President in 2014.

https://www.hcn.org/blogs/goat/permi...-fracking-boom
"In the past five years, horizontal drilling in the Permian has exploded: the number of rigs has increased fivefold. Since 2011 alone, companies have drilled over 9300 new wells. The federal Energy Information Administration expects Permian oil production to surge to over 1.3 million barrels per day in 2014, from just 800,000 barrels in 2007. The basin is now the countries largest oil producer."


I guess since the Eberhart/CNN article did not specifically mention fracking you made your erroneous claim "Actually Fracking hasn't lead to new growth the past couple years". The growth is entirely due to fracking.

Say there's another mega storm that knocked out power for days. EVs will be useless if they can't charge during that time, while you have a better chance finding gas.
Sometimes.. During Sandy, our part of our town did not lose electricity. But of course we were affected by the mile long lines for gas. We would've loved to have an EV then...

After Superstorm Sandy, NJ put a plan in effect that allowed certain size gas stations to get grants for installing backup generators. There are now 127 stations across NJ with generators.

nice. i actually was thinking recently about getting an electric car so that i can have a working car if we have another sandy. i have an automatic generator so i figure i can charge it.

i think the model Y would be a better fit for me than whats currently available since i like a small suv. i test drove a model 3 performance version and while its a nice car; i prefer a small suv.

im also very excited about self driving technology. it seems like in 2020 there will be a lot more cars available with tesla like features (adaptive cruise control and lane centering) but tesla may stay ahead if they keep pushing towards full self driving features. once that is available, im getting it for sure.
