thanks for the info I was expecting it to be like a lot more than that, that's pretty cheap for the cost of gas.
Your original question isn't very useful, esp. w/o any context as to your electricity rates, location, rate schedule, tiers and your usage vs. those tiers. There's a HUGE variance in electricity costs by state. See http://www.eia.gov/energyexplained/inde ... ing_prices

It also depends on whether you choose to break out the marginal costs of adding a Leaf or some other electrical device vs. lumping it into your total average cost. I suppose one could argue that once it's part of your household, it's not longer countable as marginal?
For example, from http://www.seattle.gov/light/accounts/r ... an_rsc.pdf
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;, if you lived in Seattle, the most it could add to your bill is 9.56 cents/kwh. If you lived in PG&E land (like me) and let's say you were already at tier 4, each kwh would be ~33.3 cents (almost 2.5x the cost)! Electricity in the cheapest tier on the E-1 schedule (non-time of used based) is ~12.2 cents/kwh.
To give a better example, gas at a cheap station near me right now is $3.35/gal. My lifetime avg on my 06 Prius is ~45 mpg. My cost per mile for fuel only would be ~7.44 cents/mile.
If I got 3.16 miles/kwh efficiency, as measured from the plug (including charging efficiency losses), at 9.56 cents/kwh, the cost would be ~3 cents/mile. If the rate were 33.276 cents/kwh, the cost would be ~10.5 cents/mile.
