Gas is getting more expensive and that is extremely annoying. How come we can't get free gas? Electric vehicles are getting a free energy boost so those of us that have gas only vehicles deserve to get free gas once in a while also.

I was at the Nassau Park Pavillion and noticed that there are some special parking spots right in front of the Best Buy store that is offering FREE electric vehicle charging. That is not fair because they take the parking spot right in front of the store and they also get to recharge for free.

We learned from Volta's website that the company teams up with many different retail stores to have the charging stations in front of their store to "experience immediate returns in terms of increased spend, dwell time and brand engagement on site." So you are trying to tell me that people with electric vehicles spend more than us non-electric vehicle people?

According to Volta, the company has over 1,500 EV charging stations across the country.

Here are 2 locations in Mercer and Bucks County locations:

  • Nassau Park Pavillion - 299 Nassau Park Blvd, Princeton, NJ 08540
  • Neshaminy Mall - 707 Neshaminy Mall, Bensalem, PA 19020\

Both locations will give electric vehicle owners 2 hours of free charge, according to Volta.

Back on February 24, Volta posted a picture on Instagram congratulating Princeton for its new free EV charging station. With that being said, the free EV charging station in Nassau Park Pavillion is fairly new to the area.

Kohl's and Macy's are two major retails stores that have recently teamed up with Volta charging stations.  

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
