WASHINGTON (AP) — Many Americans still aren’t sold on going electric for their next car purchase.

High prices and a lack of easy-to-find charging stations are major sticking points, a new poll shows.

About 4 in 10 U.S. adults say they would be at least somewhat likely to buy an EV the next time they buy a car, according to the poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago, while about half aren’t ready to give up on gas-powered vehicles.

The results indicate that President Joe Biden’s plan to dramatically raise EV sales is running into resistance from drivers.
