Derek Price, author of the nationally syndicated "Cargazing" column that appears in the Herald-Banner, reflects on the rising popularity of electric cars in Europe, where sales of electric vehicles now amounts to 10 percent of all cars sold.

Wyman Williams, long time proprietor of Williams Motors in Commerce, discusses the future of the electric car, whose popularity is suffering lately because of low gasoline prices.  Wyman says electric cars were marketed about 100 years ago, but the same battery challenges involving driving range and cost existed then.  Wyman is director of development for the Texas A&M University-Commerce College of Business.
