Many petrol stations will close over the next 20 years, accelerating the shift to electric cars.

I wonder how many will try (and succeed) in shifting towards charging stations to remain viable. The fact is, though, if all cars were instantly transferred to electric, we still wouldn't need nearly as many charging stations as we currently have gas stations-- that's a reality that has to be realized and handled.

Charley, I think some service stations will provide DC Fast Charging . They offer food , drinks and bathrooms just like they do today. A few have already started this service. For trips this will always be needed.

    Don't you think this will be the natural transition?
