% I had posted 
 that the EV news was now so thin (super-slow trickle), that I was having to
scrape not only the bottom, but the sides of the barrel to find anything
EV-interesting/worthy of your viewing time.

And in the past I have posted of how the anti-EV Koch-Bros $M's were strewn
throughout the media of which I had to wade through (like a cesspool) to
find EV items.

Well, it seems one of the koch-funded media-teams have run short on ideas.
Morgan Stanley's 'snack-item-cra$h caused by EVs' piece that was obviously
paid for by fo$$il-fuel koch-bro$, has been run in many forms by several
media outlets (most of which have turned off public access to comment).

Normally, I do not give posting time to koch's anti-EV junk. But this-time I
thought I would show what I found/have-endured-through. The headline tries
to blame gas-stations losing convience-store ca$h-flow, because EVs won't be
stopping there.

But this ignores several points:

-drivers still will want a soda/snacks on their route. When I would plan an
EV trip, when I choose a public EVSE (or are updating a plugshare.com
listing), I would select an EVSE that had a nearby place to get drinks,
food, restroom for the L2-hours wait. So, many times when L2 charging, I
would walk to the nearest ice-station, use their convenience-store services
while I wait ...

-EVSE at ice-stations. Shell isn't the only oil company installing EVSE at
their gas-stations:




 In those cases, the plugin driver will be there L2 charging for hours, thus
would consume many more drinks/snacks than ice-drivers would would be
in-and-gone quickly ...

-And the ratio EVs on the road compared to ice is still way-low thus,
ice-station convenience store biz will just not be impacted ...

 So the whole koch-induced headline is hysterical. The inane-premise twists
and turns like a twisty-turny thing ...

Below is one link, but I purposely left off all the links on the others (you
can find them yourself, as I do like advertising koch's anti-EV garbage):

If drivers of electric cars aren't stopping at gas stations to fill their
