    Shell says it will start installing electric vehicle chargers at its gas stations this year

    In a future where the world’s car fleet is rapidly transitioning to electric vehicles, gas stations will be forcefully downgraded to simple convenience stores and consequently, they will lose a significant revenue stream brought in by people stopping for gas but buying something at the convenience store.

    The gas stations that are going to survive the switch to electrification are the ones that have fast food in addition to a convenience store. Like Sheetz.
