Gas prices soar in Pittsburgh area, some consider electric vehicles

As prices at the pump soar, some are considering alternatives for when they hit the road. “There’s an influx of people that are open-minded to the EVs, to the electric vehicles,” Jeff Iwanowski, general manager of Monroeville Kia, told Pittsburgh’s Action News 4. It’s getting more challenging finding gas prices under $3.99 in the Pittsburgh area, as Russia continues to invade Ukraine, causing an impact nationwide. In Pittsburgh, AAA says the average price is $3.95 a gallon, with some service stations posting $4.09 a gallon. AAA believes if the crisis continues those numbers will only keep getting higher. In East Liberty, Sunoco is hitting $4.29 per gallon.“Everywhere you go it’s four something, or it’s getting higher than four something — it’s ridiculous,” said George Porter, who stopped at the Sunoco. “It’s going to be worse when it gets higher and keeps getting higher, I mean I don’t know what we’re going to do about it — I mean, you can’t do nothing about it but pay it.”Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 asked drivers if they would consider making the switch from gas to electric:“I mean the way the gas prices are going up, I think it would be a better idea to switch (to electric),” said Harsh Patel. “The way it’s rising the past couple of days, it’s crazy.” “No and I’m the right person to ask because I use a lot of gas,” Daniel Porter told Pittsburgh’s Action News 4. “Electric car, I’ll never get it because I don’t go no charger in front of my house what am I going to do? I just rather use the gas card, I get a lot of miles with my Honda and I like that.” Patel, who works at the BP in Pittsburgh’s Bloomfield neighborhood, believes the prices could reach as high as $5.“I get so many complaints lately, they’ll be like ‘why are you raising the price’ I’m like, ‘I wish it was on my hands but it’s not,’” he said. “I hope it doesn’t go that high, and I hope this war stops.”

Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 asked drivers if they would consider making the switch from gas to electric:

“I mean the way the gas prices are going up, I think it would be a better idea to switch (to electric),” said Harsh Patel. “The way it’s rising the past couple of days, it’s crazy.”
